    Never was able to find a legend on their numbers and grading. Mine was NOS as well, the box was unsaveable however.
    Ask Utopian about carborundom stones. Hirlau has quite a few too. They could probably tell you if it is intended for razors or for tools/knives.

    A few guys use a translucent Arky for a slurry raiser. Works well for me. The little 3"x" knife stone are great for that. thye are harder than the average razor hone so they do not deposit any of their own grit. And, if they did, the grit is so fine as to be unnoticed.

    I used to make slurry using diamond slurry card, however after reading somewhere from Jnats vendor that using diamond plate for slurry will prevent the stone face from being polished which will make it finer when finishing with water, also I have experience that a polished Escher is finer that a freshly lapped one, I thought that the polished stone idea applys only for hard stones but you should not take anything without trying. As mixing some arky slurry in the process, if you are using translucent Arkansas it is almost impossible for your average stones, I remember slurrying a Jade stone using translucent Arkansas

    However white hard Arkansas can leave it particles behind.

    +1...The Ark is a good one...so are the low series Carborundum hones( 101,101a,102,103,104,105). I use the small #102 as my slurry hone/raiser on every one of my finishers: Coti's, Eschers, JNATs...you name it it works great!
