$358.00

Easy mellow self slurrying stone that gives a mellow fine hazy ‘kasumi’ finish with moderate amounts of water and pressure. Can be made finer by letting a worked slurry dry a bit with light presssure and small strokes. An excellent easy to use fine finisher here, great for a beginner but would be appreciated by an experienced natural stone user as well. 

 

175x74x35mm 1053 grams

Hardness/ Fineness: 3.5 / 3.5-4 (bright kasumi)

Aiiwatani:

A ‘Higashi-Mono’ (Eastern Mine) whetstone that is close in proximity to Takashima and Wakasa, two mines known for their high density stones.

 

Asagi:

This aesthetic term refers to the general color of the stone. Typically, Asagi stones are grey, light blue, greyish-blue/green, and tan. 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.

Namazu:

Translating to ‘cat-fish’, this aesthetic quality looks like white blotches on the stone. Usually this quality has a great sharpening feel that is smooth and tactile. In extreme cases of Namazu where the stone is very hard, it can be scratchy with too much pressure.
