I rescued this very unique vintage Coti that lives in a labeled wooden case. It measures in at 5 x 1 3/4. It has a interesting surface heavily peppered with manganese dots. It also has angular fissures that make the surface looks to me like storm clouds. With all that is going on with this stone, it is very hard and smooth as glass, no effect at all from the storm clouds on function. I honed and refreshed a few blades on this stone. It was surprisingly fast on slurry but slow on water. Using only water, it produced a mellow Coti edge that we all love but took some effort to get there.
