    Default Anyone worked out the Dargons Tongue?

    Last night I returned to my Dragons Tongue while honing a Gold Dollar. I used it after a Coti and slurry and it quickly improved the edge. I chickened out and finished on the Coti + water, but now wish I'd carried on.

    While honing the stone appeared to be releasing abrasive particles which I suspect would have rounded the edge if allowed to build up and it did appear to be cutting quickly. Previously I found that it would dull the edge from a 6K synthetic but I was using a thickish slurry at the time.

    Has anyone else percervered with a DT and if so how do you use it?
    Regards
    Nic

    I'd be willing to persevere with a Dragon's Tongue, but I don't think I've got one. I'm not even sure what a Dragon's Tongue is.

    This week I received a mystery stone. The scratch pattern looked coarser than those made by a Coticule so I took out my DT for comparison. The result was pretty close. The DT is a nice stone if you're looking for a natural around 8k. I didn't notice any autoslurry after doing 60 strokes, maybe with another razor?

    I've always wanted to try one of these, though my expectations are low, but the shipping cost being more than the cost of the hone always kept me from it. I can't even go in with someone else on the shipping because they don't give any break on it. If you order one hone for $11.26, the shipping is $13. If you order 10 hones for $112.60, the shipping is $130!

    I ordered 3 at once and only paid shipping for 2. You have to email them if you want special sizes, slurry stones or a shipping discount on multiple DTs.
