Have you considered a slate saddle ridge with step flashing? You can see the process here:

We are currently working on a restoration project involving a total replacement of an existing 100yr + slate roof. As far as we can tell, the original ridge did not have any metal. It was installed as a comb ridge. Would it be better if we were to install some type of ridge metal? If a leak did occur at the ridge, it would probably be unnoticed for quite some time since the attic space is not accessible. Is there a preferred or most recommended detail for the ridge with respect to water infiltration?
