Massive natural combination Coticule from the La Grise layer, with beautiful surface patterns of black manganese lines and red stripes.
bout: 230mm long, 75mm at widest end, 55mm at narrowest end
Speed on slurry:
Feedback on slurry:
Feedback of very fine abrasion combined with a draw that promotes excellent contact between razor and hone. Slurry turns gray almost immediately.
Slurry Keenness Limit:
sufficient to shave a beard
Speed on water:
Feedback on water:
Above average speed on water. Without much dilution, coming off a milky slurry, persistent work on water only will yield a perfect edge. Nice draw that seems to help good contact between hone and razor.
This Coticule was selected for testing because of its interesting, extraordinary for a La Grise, appearance.
