Hey all. Well over the past while I've been using a natural finishing stone which is very hard and doesn't give up mud easy. So I've been thinking about picking up a natural nagura. Now, I know when it comes to synthetics I know you use a nagura for just cleaning up the stone, but on naturals I've heard that you use it and don't wash it off but sharpen on it. So I hope that a few of you guys can fill in my gaps and fill me in all the way. Thanks again.

I will preface this by saying I have no natural stones or a natural nagura, but Tsill from TC blades has a few videos on his site that feature some covenant stones with a natural nagura and I think he sells most his stones with one. If anything his site is worth checking out.

you can grab a set of botan , mejiro, tenjio, and a piece of tomonagura and work with that.
Try Maksim, he will be able to help you
