A natural yellow “select grade” coticule honing stone from Ardennes Coticule which is of bench size and of select quality. This high quality natural stone is very hard wearing and, with the right care, should last a lifetime. As such it represents a real investment for anyone with a serious interest in honing. This stone is approx. 200 x 60 mm including a schist backing bonded to the coticule. The stone is supplied in a tight fitting attractive beech box. These large select grade coticules are now rare and require considerable labour. As a result their price has risen significantly.
