Background:

The La Veinette layer is one of the most renowned. It was in the old days used to produce hones for the most expensive Coticule gradations.
La Veinettes are nearly always naturally bonded to a BBW. The "La Veinette" BBW has started to gather quite a reputation on its own, notably for the ease at which it delivers good keenness.
