Easy to use fast cutting Aiiwatani with a mellow buttery feel, it cuts easily with lots of water and pressure and also can be graded finer by letting the mud dry a bit and reducing pressure and stroke length. An easy to use size to boot. 

Aiiwatani:

A ‘Higashi-Mono’ (Eastern Mine) whetstone that is close in proximity to Takashima and Wakasa, two mines known for their high density stones. Aiiwatani are great shiage-toishi(fine stones) when you are looking for a refined edge. Typically more mellow in cutting action, but this can lead to a cleaner polish.

Asagi:

The Asagi aesthetic refers to the general color of the stone. Typically, Asagi stones are grey, greyish-blue, or grey-green. There are a few other examples of Asagi. They are usually quite clean stones that are on the harder side, however softer Asagi stones are great for knife polishing.

Goma:

This aesthetic quality looks like tiny black dots, or little sesame seeds in the stone. This quality typically translates to having a fast cutting speed.
