So i got my self huge Coticule Natural combo for knifes
I have 4 of small Cticules for razors and i think they are fantastik stones.
They are not cheap and in that size with Natural combo they are Rare.
So why i think that they are so fantastik ?
Its because they are made of garnish that is as hard as diamonds if not harder. And you can get them in all different hardnes like Jnats.
They are super super fast for they fines. They do not brake in grits like synthetic or Jnats do ! The more mud they make the faster they cut.
they dont care what steel it is PM, SS, Carbon it dose not mader for them they just eat steel like crazy
That makes them perfect for pro users !
Razor users clames that these stones do not make burr at all, I have tested it on knifes and i can say burr is very very minimum in these stones. The mud in front of the edge supost to eat steel so aggressive that burr shod not be formed at all.
They are splash and go stones what i like very much !
Blue side or purple is slower then yellow side and bit coarser, so approx. 4k for purple and 8 k for yellow
Yellow side contains more garnish thats why its faster.
But like i sad they are super expensive and maybe you can be lucky and get one to super price on ebay.
There are many many Vains and brands of Coticule the only one mine that still exist and sells them is Ardennes, but there was many more in old times.
They are very interesting stones !
Here i made little video with Coticule and Kasumi finish
Here is one of my razor Coticules
And here is my colection of them
They are all from different vains
