From the top down picture ot is hard to tell, but from the side it seems the crack extends right through the coti and even into the bbw. If you camn feel it when honing than I would say it is a problem, but what do I know.
I have never had any problems with Ardennes Coticule, but the learned folks of this very forum reckon Maurice is quick to replace any item you are not happy with whether it is actually a problem or not.
P.S. I did actually have a crack in a large coti I bought for knives, but as it was only affecting the very corner of the hone and the hone he sent me had about a 20mm thick coticule layer I thought I done pretty damn good, and left well enough alone.

I would send it back and ask for a replacement, Ardeness take pride in their customer service so it should be cool.

Failing that I would rub superglue into it, and then lap it smooth, thats what I did with a similar crack mine has in one corner

Don't be devastated. Send Ardennes those pictures. They'll take care of you.

The crack could indeed be reinforced with CA-glue, but that is not really your concern.

Kind regards,
Bart.

What is the size of the hone and where is the crack? He could still make a shorter hone plus slurry stone for you.

Look at the coticule vault and compare how they perform. Or ask Maurice. I think, he is able to tell you which to choose. From reading through this forum, I think Le Petite Blanche should act similar.

So, what size is/was the hone anyway?
