    Im thinking something i do not know if im right
    I notice that in old times everything was made in purpose , and as we know ,that are so many thuri and coty layers , with diferent quality , i began to think ,that there is a diference in the smal stones and the big ones . Not a big and significant ,but there is .
    I notice that the smallest sizes thuris and cotis ,i own are aways the finer stones , maybe because they were made for razors .
    The biggest sizes thuri are a bit faster and coarser stones , maybe for the purpose of tool and peckknifes sharpening .
    The coticules are also finer . The smalest size the fine is the stone .
    Those are my observations and i think that the smallest sizes ,are purposely cut from the finest stratas of the rock , as they were intended to be a razor hones .
    Dont think , that the people were stupid 100 years ago - i think that they have much developed skils and finer taste for the good things and for the practical use .
    Why do you think is that fancy name and that wooden boz - The Celebrated Razor hone - remember - the Celebrated

    Mine came without box and supposedly used with oil. Couldn't see any oil traces and only using it will show whether it's fine enough for razors or not. Got it cheap, so no loss either way. Just fun figuring it out.

    I just got ahold of this little Thuri and it is about 1x5. Hopefully it is big enough to actually use!

    The suction is the only thing that makes such a small hone usable at my skill level. Lay it flat and it just stays flat when moving. Takes effort to scrape the edge of the stone

    whatever keeps the razor bevel flat on the stone. Certainly with the very small stones, prep at the prior step being perfect is more important than it is if you have a huge 8x2 stone that you can use to wipe away some poor-prep errors.

    The small size hones gripe the hell out of me in two respects, high cost and harder to work with.
    Obtaining a larger thuri is the only way I would own one, seems that is only possible when someone dies and leaves it to you in a will.

    Sorry, in a lot of pain today.

    I have seen that shape of stone used as a slurry stone, in old photos of a shop, with the beveled end as the working surface against the other stone.
    It would still make a fine slow working touch up stone next to your sink.
