I was wondering, I'm back in the UK in a week or so and was thinking about picking up a welsh slate hone for my razors.
I currently have a coticule and a 600/1000 artificial stone (for setting difficult bevels).
So as you've guessed, what are the slate hones like? There's a guy on eBay aj_1001 that sells them and they seem reasonably priced but just wondering if it's worth me getting one or if I would be better sticking with the coti.
Can I use unicot style sharpening with them? Will it work?
