    If you were in sensible posting distance I'd let you wear down a few edges on it (I don't think you would have to do many laps!) as long as the item was insured adeqately(spelling??).
    It is all speculation yet though honestly, I haven't even seen the thing properly yet!
    Still, what can you eagle eyed members tell from the picture?
    I'll do a wet shot when it comes.

    I think it's going to be a dreamy polishing stone.

    Oh, probably wishful thinking on my part for your benefit. I only have a handful of coticules, but the light creamy looking ones have been the best performers; not that the ones that aren't lighter in color don't also work well, but the creamy ones in my collection really polish well.

    Oh right. So you've based it on the picture. It does look quite light. Maybe a Rabbi with a big knife might like it
    All I hope is that it's 12 inches x 4 inches, not cm. It's going back if it's cm's.
    What's one 6x2 natural combo worth then? (don't panic! I repeat I won't chop it up)

    That is my experience as well, for the most part.

    It seems like the lighter ones polish to a greater degree than other, darker, or more mottled coticules.

    But either way, the coticule is a good polisher so you shouldn't be worried about that.

    6"x2" is $130, 8"x3" is $250 (as per Howard's prices)

    What about a combo? Sorry, as in price.
    Cheers Russ.

    Marcus, those are the combo stone prices that Russel made reference to. Check out Howard's site, I think you'll quite enjoy it: CLICK HERE

    His prices are very low and he's a top notch person to deal with.

    The 6x2 price is very very good then. The 8x3 shows how, as the piece gets bigger, the price really does sky rocket
    I can't wait now

    Actualy per square inch the 8"x2" combo is slightly cheaper than the 6"x2" combo.

    But both are about $10 per square inch, so if that held(it probably shouldn't) the stone you have would be about $500.

    Edit

    Cost per square inch per stone size

    6"x2" $10.84 per square inch
    8"x2" $10 per square inch
    8"x3" $10.42 per square inch

    Your stone has 48 square inches
