    Default Thuringian/ Hohenzollern ? Yellow Green Black

    Would like to share with you what I think is very interesting color combination of this hone. Came from Germany from old barber shop and was very highly recommended. I have other Eschers /Thuringians like LG , YG ,BG , "Brown" and "Black"
    but never something like this.

    Does not look like a thuringian to me, not like a german hone that I have seen so far and not like a slate hone at all. Since you do have a lot of other thuringians - how does it compare in sense of hardness, fineness and honing capabilities. The fact that it came from a german barber doesn't mean anything. There were nearly all kind of hones from all over the world in use in Germany.

    @ Utopian

    Thank YOU. Enjoy.

    @ Hatzicho

    Not sure what you trying to say.............. First you negging the hone/post and next you asking for feedback. The main reason I introduced this hone is to let the members better understand whole family of thuringians hones, black color included. Speaking of black color please try to understand what it does to photography and the appearance on computer screen.

    Best Regards,

    OoH, sorry,

    don't want to bother you. Just was asking for the honing capabilities to help you find out, if this could be any sort of thuringian or german hone at least. But if you already now this - ok for me!

    Interesting hone! What is the size of the hone? Is it glued to the box?
    Is it over there or over yonder?

    Well it's definitely a interesting hone. Very nice colours an a stone cut across the veins. Not something usually seem on commercial hones.

    Is it a kind of slate?

    How fine is it?

    Is it fast or slow? How does the slurry look like?

    Do you know of its geographic origin?

    A lot of questions, but it is a nice looking hone 😊
