Crack in my coticule

A thin crack is developping on my coticule and seems to continue in its thickness

has it an effect on honing performance? can I still continue to use the part of the coticule beyond the crack?

Bonsoir Laurent,

When you hone a razor with that coticule, do you feel it when you pass the crack ?
I have a coticule with a similar crack, but I don't feel it through the razor so it doesn't affect it.

At first sight it seems too small to effect performance.

Kind regards,
Wim

I don't think it'll cause trouble.

Do you feel the crack when the razor passes over it?
Can you see "into" the crack, or is a tightly closed line?

Kind regards,
Bart.

No I can't feel the crack when I pass the razor (or my finger, nail...) over nor can I see "into" the crack that's why I asked this question.
But I'm not a very good honer:blush: .

Maybe a strange question, but are you sure it hasn't always been there. On the picture it looks more like a manganese hairline than a crack.

Look at this beautiful and perfect Coticule:

When I received my La Veinette, I took a picture to show it on this forum. And I have just noticed at the same location what I call, the beginning of the crack.

I don't think it's an inclusion but I'm not a specialist and it's difficult to realize on a picture.

Regards

^ I can't quite make it out. Is it that thick black line in the center of the hone at the top? :confused: :rolleyes:
