Gary is spot on:

Top one is La Petite Blanche. So is the slurry stone.
The bottom one is a La Veinette.

These are very nice stones. :thumbup:

Kind regards,
Bart.

Ill let you know that i asked if La Nouvelle Veine and La Veinette was available
I have had no reply and no info in the package so maybe i got what i asked maybe not

so now i got two stones and probably should first figure out witch one to hide for six months

i have both of these and i would say they both sound and feel very similar .also cut very similar.

like bart said both nice and very sought after hones. lpb is 125x40 i quite like the size.

Ah, beauties… I have a la Veinette, but if i could get a la PEtite Blanche, I wouldn´t hesitate… Maybe, it´s just the grey line:p

I had to think about some kind of "Identifying layer key". I don´t know whether you know it, but there are such things for flowers, trees and mushrooms and so on. It´s like "1.: Are the leafs shaped like (a: move on to 3.), (b: move on to 5. ), (c: move on to 6. )? 3.: Is the color of the blossom like: …" and by answering all the questions, you should find the right tree, flower or whatever… Do you understand, what I mean?

Regards,
Tok

I believe "Dichotomous Key" is the word you are looking for:

And it's a great idea.... but i'd be hapy with a plain ol' chart:rolleyes:

Yes, that´s pretty much what I meant. Maybe, it´s a stupid idea, but I was thinking about it for quite a time now.

Dang, Chris. "Dichotomous"? You really are a mad scientist. Down here they are called "Decision Trees" and used throughout the automotive and aircraft maintenance industry for troubleshooting. It is a great idea, but a lot of work in that it is the same logic that would be needed to write code for a program that identified layers. YRP, Denny

That grey line in the La Petite Blanche is a hybrid layer?
Im putting one of the stones in safe storage so i figured i needed an extra slurry stone
Cutting the little bout in two it split and revealed something looking werry much like hybrid

Now i have to stop thinking about how to get the 125x30 stone to split before i do something stupid:-/

No, it's not a hybrid layer. Keep your stone in one piece. It can't get much smaller and still be usable for honing straights.

I'd love to see a picture of that surface.
I've never seen a La Petite Blanche honed down till the blue line, or split on it, as in your case. I would not split your actual hone for that purpose. A La Petite Blanche is very nice as is. :)

At least you have 2 slurry stones now, or is it 4? :D

Kind regards,
Bart.

I do believe that the coticule layer on my other stone is too thin to survive any attempt at splitting:|
still that thin layer inside does look interesting:love:







seems like theres a pure Coticule layer again before the BBW
