Belgian Coticule Vintage Combination - 1 3/4 x 4 5/8" - Sharpening Hone with Slurry Stone
This example of a vintage glued combination Coticule / Belgian Blue Whetstone for your consideration measures 1 3/4 x 3 5/8"at the longest point x 5/8" thick and has a 4-5 mm thick coticule layer. This stone has been lapped flat and the edges chamfered on the yellow coticule and Belgian Blue sides and is ready to use. I have tested it with a couple razors and it is a medium speed cutter, silky smooth and nice fine finisher. One of the corners has a small void in the coticule layer where it is bonded to the BBW, but should not be an issue for many years of use.
Included is a modern coticule slurry stone, with the yellow coticule bonded to slate.
The stone is shown wet in the final two photos to show its coloring and grain, with all before that of the stone dry. Also razor is not included, and is shown only as a size reference.
