I have a le verte too and I have to say that it besides being a very slow stone it also releases slurry very slow. what I do is I tilt the slurry stone so only the edge has contact with the stone and then I releases the slurry easier but still slowurmas said:Hi Bart,
When I use my relatively hard La Verte... then two or even four rubs don't give any signs of misty slurry. Please tell me, when you do one or two rubs on your coticule, then did you actually see that water turns lightly misty or not?
