Bart, do you think you will be able to get the above coti in the near future ? I would love another one. A 200 x 40 would be real nice. The reason i ask you, is the dges i'm getting from my la grosse jaun are the best i have ever got. I never got a bad edge of the other cotis. This one just seems so consistant. The results never fail. I'm honing more razors for other fokes. I'd hate to wear this stone outand never be able to get another .I'm using my nu 3 for main bevel work as it is faster cutter then i swithch to my la grosse jaun for the dilucot. I'm not sure why but the dges are extra smooth.The keeness is as good as it gets the hht is as good as cr.ox all day long. On your next visit in the future please don't forget la grosse jaune.
