    Default Lets play guess the vein - Coticule :)

    Ok, I know this one is a good stone, might be La veinette because the horizontal line in the BBW part and creamy yellow part.

    How does it finish ???
    Does it Auto Slurry
    How does it feel with the Thumbnail test

    Most importantly how is the shave from it

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Its From Ardennes, as of last week. But for some reason asked for the vein 3 times, didnt get an answer.
    So I figure it sat there long enough so they dont recall where they mined it from.

    Honestly I tried multiple times with multiple people to play guess the Vein on my Select from Ardennes that was sold 15 years ago BEFORE the idea that Veins meant anything in the least

    Tell ya what even in person I got guess's along the whole range,,, on the internet I had even more

    I gave up on the whole notion after that


    Does it produce a good shaving edge ??? Yours has no visible inclusions so it is a Select Grade

    The Shave is sublime. As good as I can get my friodur to shave. From the stone to linen, then leather. A very mellow edge gliding on my face. Totally satisfied.
    Knowing the vein is the icing on the cake, nothing more.
