The Ardennes Coticule Standard sharpening stone is comprised of a top layer of Coticule and a bottom layer of unusable black slate. The Coticule stone has a grit between 6000 and 8000 and contains 30 to 42% garnets. This makes the stone very hard. As such your knives will be razor-sharp again in no time. Because of the fine structure of the stone the fold of the sharpened knife will be smooth leaving you with razor-sharp results. Many people use the Coticule stones to sharpen their classic straight razor.
The Coticule has a yellow-white colour with sometimes a red and green glow. 'Selected' offers a homogeneous stone while the 'Standard' comes with some visible beauty flaws or natural discolourations. This, however, won't affect the qualities of the stone. However, because of the delicate edge we recommend using a Coticule Selected Stone when sharpening a straight razor.
Coticule sharpening stones are natural products. They are modified by hand. As such small differences in shape and size cannot be ruled out.
