    I love that blue scaled razor. The scales are awesome!

    Today's hone session started with a trip to the mailbox. The coticule geezer sent me arrived. I had seen pictures but not of the bottom side. It turns out it was a combo coticule. An added bonus. The bbw side was horrendous. DMT dia flat to the rescue. That puppy was tamed in 30 minutes.

    I took it to a Dovo 6/8 which I was working on and pictured it earlier in this thread. Dulled the edge on glass, slurry to get it shaving arm hair, diluted the slurry to a watery slurry, 30 x strokes. Added a layer of tape, 30 more laps, rinsed the coticule and finished on water. 50 x strokes put some soap on the Coti and 25 more laps. Just to get a sense of what this coticule had to offer. It's slow on slurry, you can feel the abrasion, not a creamy coticule by any means.

    The shave went superbly, smooth and close. For a first run at it, I'd call it a success. Although I didn't just dilute the whole way in the end does it really matter?

    Nice Coti Scott!
    I love my bbw combo. Big part of my rotation of stones. Geezer sent you a beaut!
    I too am wanting to add a chosera 1k to my line up. That and a DMT 325 for the really tuff ones.

    It looks quite nice! I am a firm believer that a nice, larger Coti is paramount to success with them.
    Enjoy!

    Thanks Mike! Next meet up or if we ever hangout for a bit ill bring it. I wasn't thinking it would provide a nice non pulling shave because of the feel under the blade. Really different feel then I'm used to.

    I forgot to add to the last post, that I didn't use a loupe, I didn't check scratch patterns, I only use 2 tests. Thumb pad test and shave test that's how I hone. Optical devices...

    At least I didn't tonight..


    Come on sharpton you don't need a big Coti to be successful I use a 3x3 with great results too. It's all what someone's used to
