    That's a coticule and it's a huge one :D It's incredibly smooth, fast and fine. It feels a lot like a La Veinette but it's obviously not because La Veinette is a thin layer. This should last me a while :D

    That's not a coti, it's the entire layer. I guess this is it. Nothing left for us.

    All the city could sharpen in that stone and they wouldn't spend it.

    Will that be mostly used for chisels/planes or knives or razors or everything?

    For now mostly for my tools. I might cut it in half at some point, it's thick enough.

    I have never seen a Coticule of this size. So cool.

    It's a first for me as well. And there's even a thin layer of BBW on the bottom so it's really a double sided stone :D
