Belgian Yellow Coticule 8x3", Standard Grade
Best used to refine a razor blade edge, the Belgian Yellow Coticule 8x3", Standard Grade is durable and high-performing.
- Use wet or dry or wet with slurry stone
- 8000 grit (without a slurry), 6000 grit (with a slurry)
- Slurry stone sold separately
- Non-porous stone that does not require pre-soaking
- Splash water on stone before use
- The difference between the standard and select grade coticules lies only in their appearance. Both stone grades have identical sharpening qualities.
- Very hard stone (harder that most artificial wet stones) but will still need lapping before first usage and from time to time.
- To lap: Use a lapping stone (i.e DMT-8C 325 coarse diamond sharpening stone or Norton Lapping Stone) or with sandpaper on a very flat surface (i.e. glass).
- Tip: the long edges of the stone should be rounded slightly with a lapping stone or sandpaper. This way the risk of denting the blade in a normal honing motion across the stone is greatly reduced.
- Natural sharpening stone
- Note: These are natural stones and each stone is one-of-a-kind. The photo is for illustration purposes ONLY, and might not accurately represent the Belgian Yellow Coticule stone you will actually receive.
- 8 x 3" (200 mm x 75 mm)
