Since this is my very first post I have no idea of the level of members' interest in this kind of hone.  If I accumulate  enough quality posts, would this be the kind of item that the members would like to get?

I've got this 5" x 2" x 1 1/4" honing stone but cannot seem to get agreement on what type of composition it has.


Would lapping this hone increase its value or should I ust leave it alone?

Here's a close-up of the end of this hone that might help with the ID.  I don't want to influence the opinions of anyone opining but someone mentioned that this could be some sort of Arkansas hone.  

Because I'm new to the SN I don't know how much can be discussed about the value of hones or straight razors in these threads.  I'd like some guidance on the appraising opinions subject and how much $ details are permitted to post.

I'd like to know what this hone is used for: straight razors (SR) or knives.  Also the material of this hone needs to be ID'd.

A couple more shots may help to ID this stone having dimensions of 8 1/2 x 1 3/4 x 1".  The larger scale photo is the end of the hone.[Image: 9Xp1QhE.jpg][Image: 5GB36cZ.jpg]

This hone has been my most difficult to ID.  I have no idea of the material it's made of or the use it is intended for.  Any help would be 
appreciated.  The dimensions are  1/2" x 1 7/8 " x 5/8".
