Spotted Doggie

Spotted Doggie 1

 Dressante with Manganese Spots

 I’m borrowing the ‘spotted dog’ name from Jarrod at the Superior Shave. I bought one from him years ago, and foolishly – I sold it.  The original SD was also a Dressante, so I’m wondering if these pronounced Manganese spots are specific to that vein. 

This puppy is smaller than my original ‘spotted dog’ – so I’m calling it the spotted doggie.


You don’t think I can be whimsical?

Pffft…I am seriously freaking whimsical.


This one has a bit of softness, and it’s fast on slurry. On water it’s slower but not very slow. I see this one fitting into my Coticule line-up as a posh slurry stone. That being said – it’s also quite serviceable as a start-to-finish straight razor hone, and it gives up seriously nice edges. 

Approx. Dimensions: 4.0 x 1.6” / 101 x 41 mm

Coticule Layer: 0.4” / 10 mm

Weight: 9.3 oz / 264 g
