This is a natural combo La Grise Coticule. It has only been used a few times. It is pretty fast on slurry, slow on water. Excellent finisher. The edges are chamfered and it has also been lapped. As you can also see it has a slurry stone with it. The size is 150mmx50mm. I will sell this for $120 with free shipping. This is CONUS only and payment via PayPal.

Thanks. I thought I was going to stick with straights but I enjoy my DE's more.

hmmm...that is tempting. Been wanting to try a coticule for a while now...
Can I see a pic of the reverse surface and the opposite side shot?

I hear some of the back sides can be good for bevel setting. Did you ever try using the bbw side for that? Might help make up my mind if this could be a real 'start to finish' stone Biggrin

I've used the standard Norton set, but then need a finisher.
I've used a C12k and the welsh tri-hone set, but that only comes after the nortons (which I don't love to begin with).
I've used lapping films, they get the job done, but it's just not the same somehow.
Would be nice to find one stone that looks this attractive that could handle the job from bevel setting to finishing Biggrin

It should last you for the 100yrs. This one has and I'm still using it.
They're nice to have.

You can set a bevel on a La Grise Coticule, but it will be slower than a Norton. Typically a La Grise is pretty slow on both slurry and water, but it will give you a nice smooth edge. Although I'm still looking for that edge myself Rolleyes
You really need to learn your coticule!

Don't know about the BBW as I've not used one.

Never used the blue side. The yellow side is likely fast enough to reset a bevel with slurry though it may take several laps. I will post a picture of the back tonight when I get home.

Great, thanks
Assuming the other side profile and the blue surface look as good as the side pictured and the top, I think I'd be willing to give this a shot Cool

That stone is very homogenous and I would have bought it myself already if I had the open funds. I am fairly certain you will be pleased.
