The original veins of BBW natural bonded coticles are now exhausted & the modern production bonds coticules to a slate backing to keep them stable.
An extremely fine finishing stone, coticles give similar results comparable to 6000 to 12,000 grit sharpening stones.

This coticle stone is in authentic vintage condition, it's had light use only, a factory chamfer on one corner, a couple of minor flea bites to the edges, this stone has a vein of manganese running across it diagonally & a reddish natural patch in the center edge, this is a superb large stone that would make an awesome user.
