    Default Imperia La Roccia

    Hello, has anyone used this hone? its an Imperia La Roccia 12-15k finishing hone. It is sold on the bay from powertoosnow. I bought the small one, its advertised as a natural stone its light gray in color. Tried it on an old french razor that always took a while to hone. Went a few circles and passes stropped and it shaved very well. As I use it more I will let you know how it does. Comes lapped and with a slurry stone. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

    And again, that is a pointless fallacy.

    Inconsistent stone, and according to a member that lives in the town of Imperia in Italy, not mined there.

    I think they could be related to that Thai slate (I could be wrong). Which if true you can get it much cheaper, they look sort of blue in the picture for their listing.

    Honestly I find them expensive for a plain grey slate that has no exceptional qualities.(They are not fast like they claim, probably not 12-15k grit, and I have yet to hear someone with high grade finishers to compare say they are worth purchasing)

    Give me a coticule bout or a small thuringian from Hatzicho any day. About the same price and you get a stone that is a truly great finisher.
