    Stewie, I suspect that the first stone is the same or similar to one I purchased from Carbatec about 10 years ago. They were also sold by Lee Valley for a while. The green colouring and description...

    Yes :( I attempted to remove the 375gm head so that it might be reversed - I am resigned to using the domed side. Damn the person who built the handle! :D
