Zulu Grey Raw Blocks

$155.00

Experience the sheer joy of flattening and lapping your Zulu Grey hone from its completely raw state. The price doesn’t get you a neatly cut and finished hone, but it does buy you A LOT of stone for the money. If you have a good lapping plate (DMT or Atoma etc.) and if you don’t mind spending some time lapping – then you will be treated to a mammoth sized Zulu Grey hone at the price of much smaller coticules for example..

These Raw Blocks vary in size and shape but generally they are about 10 inches long by 3 to 4 inches wide by 1.5 to 2.5 inches thick.

(The image shown to the left is for illustrative/reference purposes only – this is not the exact stone you will receive – rather it is an example of the size and general appearance of the product.)

Quarried by hand in small numbers, the Zulu Grey is a unique, indurated sedimentary rock formed over 200 million years ago in the late Permian Period in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The stone is quite hard, exceptionally strong and dense. The Zulu Grey whetstone is quarried for its ability to impart a smooth final shaving edge on Straight Razors, however it would be equally effective at finishing a wide variety of fine-bladed tools and instruments. The stone is of course a natural product and as such each hone has an inherently unique appearance.
