I found this coticule : , 5"x1", and she has an extreme fast cutting power, water turns black almost immediately. She's much quicker than my Naniwa 1 000 :scared: .

I tried a couple of dilucots and shaved: :thumbup: she leaves a smooth edge too. I was a little skeptical regarding the size, only 5x1, but I found honing very easy with this kind of size...HHT -5 or HHT-4 (a Bartmann 13/16 and on a Söderen 11/16, both full hollow).

I have other cotis too, much bigger, but after this "experience", I'm asking myself why we buy bigger hones

My question: is this little stone a Petite Blanche?

Kind regards,

Andreas
