I bought this stone for a friend and evidently he didn't want because it is mine now Honed a razor with it last night and this stone was very easy to use and provided a lovely shaving edge. Now I'm curious about what vein it comes from. I tried to ID it myself by comparing it to pictures from the vault, so I think it is either a La Veinette (which was my original guess, but this stone has a different BBW to Coticule transition than the La Veinettes in the vault) or a La Petite Blanche (which I am bit skeptical about because my small La Petite Blanche bout has a whisky/carvy feel on water whereas this stone has a soft/velvety feel on water). Perhaps it is neither? Your thoughts? My apologies for the poor photos - I'm not much of a photographer.
