    Rats! So I can't use this in my progression? Should I just use water on it? I did recently purchase Norton honing Oil. Any ideas who manufactured this stone? Was it Norton?

    Truly, I dont know what to tell you. I started a thread, "mystery hone" a while back on one. Everybody said it was a coarse stone, but I found it to be very fine after wearing out my worn out DMT on it! I mean fine!. I did not finish it as it had a few light gouges in it and I was TIRED! If yours holds water that well, I wonder if it was ever oiled? The water runs into the next room off of mine! Give it a go on a lesser razor,with water, and compare to Nortons as Utopian advised ? You might have something that will be beneficial?? Never know til you try!

    I played around with this hone a bit with cheap razor. It cut a bevel quickly. I'm going to try it with a wedge. It's been a pain in the a$$ trying to bevel set the old wedges.

    Thats neat! Did you use oil or water? Let's hear how it sets a bevel on a wedge. I am most interested. Seems they feel smooth but are aggressive( if I understand). Let me know!
