The winner...

...always has to be something unavailable. Something that you can just get on ebay or amazon and buy is certainly not going to be exclusive enough.

On the razor boards, a stone or oxide that's readily available will always have some detrimental attribute when a label-buyer comes along. Anything can be made up. If the ultra rare is more coarse cutting then "oxides make an edge that's too sharp, and uncomfortable". If they're too uniform, then "varying particle size in uber rare stone makes an edge that no synthetic abrasive can match".
