Just doubled my Gold Dollar collection :) I bought a shave ready 208, well it was not quite shave ready and the shoulder needed a little more off it, apart from that all's well, will see how it performs tomorrow. After taking the shoulder down I gave it a wee run on my new coti bout, pasted balsa then clean leather...it is defo shave sharp now, but looking forward to find out how smooth it will be...or how rough!, My GD 66 took a wee bit time to get it to shave smoothly...but I got there, the coti slurry really thickens very quickly.... and you need to keep diluting it or it will get too much like a paste, I think i will get to like this stone once I have learnt a bit more, it is way different than my other stones, produces slurry really quickly with a slate rubber, I also like the certificate of authenticity you get with the chunk :)

Ended up not using it, I went for my new to me Henckles...once again a square point...and once again I got two decent nicks :-( sorted the point now but I need to rememmber to round it a little before I use it if I get anymore square points...twice I have had nasty nicks with squares...both exactly same place, left cheek close to my ear and left cheek near the cheek bone, I didnt see or feel the first one at my ear, then as i cut my cheek bone I noticed the blood at my ear...every day is a learning day :)
