    At first look I would guess a washita. Have you cleaned it up any?

    First, thank you for your reply. I washed it in dish detergent......then I steamed it. I've been sharpening knives for forty pluses years and have owned many washitas. This stone is much Harder/Denser than any washita ive had. It is also much smoother. So, any other ideas?? Matt, i won't tell anyone about your banning.
