Help me to identify my new bout

I got this bout from Jarrod from The Superior Shave (very good service!)
He has tested it and has written some "data" on it :)

The stone is incredibly smooth, much smoother than my other coti, which Bart classified as "La Verte". But what about this new one? She's much reddish in hue than the other and the slurry is generating very fast with the slurry stone.

Thanks in advance :)

Please take a few pictures of the sides of the hone, and a good focused close-up of the surface.
Without seeing the texture pattern and lateral plane of the Coticule slice (and BBW if present), I can't possible determine that bout. The La Verte was easy, because eh, there the only ones with a green hue.:)
But this one could be anything, based on the current pictures.

Kind regards,
Bart.

I think it's a La Grise. But I can't be sure.. When used with water, if it feels very smooth, almost glassy, and has a bit of draw, it's a La Grise. (check our n°1 of the Vault -owned by our own Ray-)
How quickly does the slurry discolor when you start honing on it?

Kind regards,
Bart.

Thank you Bart :)

Yes when used with water it feels very smooth with a very nice draw :p
The slurry turns dark grey quickly...much quicker than La Verte I own.
