My Puma Inox was missing a little something, a touch of tug. Out comes a pink Coticule for water only touch up. While it was out, two more German SR refreshed for the next two weeks

I have noticed a drop off in the level of sharpness from these 3 razors over the last two shaves so after many months a required quick visit to the 12K & 20K, they are now back to their usual level of sharpness.

I am beginning to really like this stone. Primitive Coticule Bout + a few drops of oil  = smooth and mellow. Very light pressure and finish with just the weight of the blade. A fine shave

Gave this Otto Busch a quick touch up ( 4-8-12 ) then about 75 or so strokes on this small LV with just a hint of slurry then 25 laps on plain water and stropped

Yellow Belgian and oil??

On the site, into Cafeteria, I've read It's better water + soap (max 20%).
I've tried and works very well.

Don't be afraid to try oil on a Coti. Just three of four drops. My oil is a mix of 50/50 baby oil and odorless kerosene. On my uber hard coticules, oil kicks up the keenness a touch. On others, depending on the stone, I will use slurry and/or water only. Each coticule has its own personality. On this particular stone, which I date to late 18th or early 19th century, I tried water but it delivered a better results with oil. 


A shot of this stone out of its base and some more info on using oil
