Is there anyone who has more information about this stone: http://www.winkelplein.nu/barbershopsup ... 1irVOLopmq

It is described as a Thuringen stone, but also as a Muller 292720. As far as I know the Muller stones are natural stones from Germany, but not from the Turingen mines. Is there anyone who can confirm this and who has more information on these stones?

Thanks!

A real thuringian for 37€? That would be amazing.

I call BS sadly. Also, their honing advice is just wrong. Razor should be flat on the hone, not almost flat.

Thanks Michiel. I found somewhat of an answer: http://forum.nassrasur.com/showtopic.php?threadid=7819 (Hope your German is good enough.)

Apparently these are stones from a mine a couple of kilometers from the original Thuringen mines. They are not sold by Muller as Thuringen stones, but apparently they are sold as such (wrongly) on the website I mentioned. People who used these stones describe them as mediocre, although one person was quite positive.

What do you mean by "I call BS sadly"? And whose honing advice is wrong?
