    It's an extra extra fine grade, I hate to say it but it was in the mid 200's.

    I figured as much. Good on you.
    If you have one or more high end razors that cost a couple of hundred dollars each, it makes sense to have a stone like that.
    I am sure it makes your honing work a lot easier and satisfying.

    Is it really easier? I still can't believe how slow the blue stone is...

    Satisfying - oh, yes!


    Cheers

    The blue stone is indeed very stone.
    If you use very little pressure, yellow is slow and very good for polishing.
    If you use more pressure it is faster and cuts, rather than polishes.

    I used it for removing burrs and scratches, and it worked like a charm.

    Blue and yellow together make for nice pyramids.
