Re: School me on polishing

Thanks, warren. The other peculiar thing in the new IIIrd edition (new- 1894 new) is the discussion of the german razor stone. It's described as occurring at its best where it meets blue slate, and often being mined and cut with a blue slate backer.

That sounds more like a belgian hone (coticule), but maybe things change.

I've seen a lot of escher stones, but have never seen one that's a natural combination like a coticule.

The author of the book seems to prefer fineness and uniformity given that it's clear that he doesn't care for the washita.
