    Cool Cutting stones is fun - viewer discretion is advised

    The benefit of having more than one strange hobby is.......... you can make slurry stones or Tomo Naguras at home

    To spare my expensive Jnats and Eschers I must cut off some cheaper stuff every now and then

    Happy Honing,

    I sometimes also do this, that was a nice coti where the coti area was too much used not left enough material...so now i have a BBW with a Slurry and an additional Coti Slurry

    nice looking slurry stone, and the most beautiful thing about it that you made it yourself. the nice thing about coticules slurry stones is that they perform very uniquely if you pay a slight attention when using them you will note the varaity, the soft ones always impress me.

    today I took this LL coticule for pictures taking, and now after seeing your little slurry stone I am motivated to slice a ½ in” from the uneven side to make a little tomonagura, although a lot of people say that LL slurry stone are useless due to the hardness of the stone, but I never take anything for granted I must try it myself, the only thing that I am afraid of is to ruin the good size of the hone since it is hard to find LL in this size and shape.

    Well, I cut it nicely and everything went okay, utill I started to rub the slurry stone on the hone to smooth the serfuce, unfortunately the suction was a bit strong which resulted in a small piece to split from the layer intersection.

    Now to the results of my very brief testing, using a tomonagura did produce slurry very much easily, however the slurry is dulling and progressing is very slow when you go to clear water as the stone is very slow the razors I tested here is a German Puma stainless steel.

    The interesting part is when I used the LL slurry on SB Arkansas to hone Spanish Koken Carbon Steel razor, I spent around 10~ minutes x stroking as I was distracted by something else and the 9" hone kept all the slurry and the resulting edge was very fine and refined under the microscope it looks like a nice Jnat edge, it seems like a successful combination, haven't shave test the razor yet.


    The worked slurry on the Arkansas hone.

    I need to spend a little more time testing to have a clearler picture of the dimensions of the stone capabilities.
