It is approximately 6x1 and slate backed. This is the best pic I have right now. I should the stone Monday or Tuesday if better pics are needed. I do thank you in advance for any assistance you may offer.

La Grise or La Nouvelle Veine. When I see a well-focussed picture of the side, I can probably tell more.

Kind regards,
Bart

Here is the only other pic I have if it no help no need to reply again. Thank you very much Bart. In my pursuit of my favorite size I wanted to try a pretty narrow one and this was affordable.

If there are several very thin blue lines running lengthwise at the side of the Coticule part, it is without much doubt a La Nouvelle Veine.
If there are no such blue hairlines, it's a La Grise.

Kind regards,
Bart

I love "razor-box" sized" hones. I suspect it's because they fit well in the hand (I am nor a bench honer) and that one looks like a peach.:thumbup:
