Vintage Les Latneuses

This is a solid slab of Les Let Hybrid that was quarried long ago. It looks and feels somewhat different than most Les Lats I’ve handled. It feels drier and less ‘glassy’. There are some red splotches  and the chamfered edges of the stone show a bit of texture that is quite different than every other LLH I’ve owned.

In use, the honing feedback is also unique for a Les Latneuses hybrid; there is a greater amount of vibratory feedback.  The texture of the stone seems to defy polishing somewhat, although it does polish up with continued honing. So this might change over time.
