Yet another identification

Deckard

Well-Known Member
I'm getting into the coticule thing but know jack about all the catagories/layers.
Is there a way of identifying my two tiny bouts? Should I post pictures?
Does knowing what they are make a difference to how I use these stones or get to know how they respond? Maybe it does, please enlighten.:-/

Yes, pictures would make the identification easier. They have visual cues that help identify them. There is some difference between the strata of coticules, but most are good for finishing razors

Thanks,
Will take some shots soon.
Quite happy so far until I got my TI back from Gary.
I'm still practicing/learning the finer points of the dilucot method.
Need to up my game and hope the stones arn't the difference that make the difference.:-/

Deckard,

You need to find the actual address of the picture. In Firefox, you can right-click the image and choose "copy image location".

Left is a La Dressante and right is a La Grise.

Both are no doubt excellent Coticules.

Kind regards,
Bart.

One question chaps.
I don't have a slury stone for the la Grise.
Am I ok to use the la dressante slury stone to generate a slury.
Am I splitting hairs thinking this much about it or would I be as well to use a DMT.
I do have a nagura stone but am unsure of the grit size or effect this could have on performance.
Sorry if this is a repeated question.

Regards
Joe

Hi Joe, you are very ok using the slurry stone that you have, you could use a DMT if you had to, but it may contaminate the slurry, I have no idea on the nagura, I would just stick with the La Dressante, its not at all unusual to have a slurry stone that came from an unknown layer, and they work just fine

Best regards

Joe, don't worry. The slurrry stone you got is just fine, as is the DMT. There's absolutely no need to use a slurry stone of the same layer as the hone.

Cheers
