    You are right. I've been looking at everything and honed is perfect, but shows fingerprints. I found that leathered or brushed is better, but it's tough to find the right stone married with the right texture. I was shying away from fabricator's upcharge for refinishing, but I think I'll find a rock I like and bite the bullet for the best texture. Thanks for the assistance!

    behrycaj - I have honed black granite in my kitchen. We had trouble in the beginning because of some kind of sealer the installer put on it that created an oily surface. That was stripped. Now I go over it every few months with denatured alcohol. In between, a quick swipe with some wet paper towel (a little dish soap if there is something sticky) and you're good to go. Fingerprints are never really an issue. I love the look. The feeling of this new leather finish kinda creeps me out for some reason. LOL

Open island? might look good as our kitchen is not that big.
