Looks a lot like the giant King stones like this 800

I have a 1k king that is pretty much the same size.

Looks like it would be a challenge to flatten.

That was my thought too, but when i looked up a pic compared to a regular King stone the one in the vid seemed bigger

Does the size cause any problems?

At first glance I though it was a 1k kikuichi!

that was my first thought too!

can you imagine the size of a DMT XXC you would need?? it would cost like $200

so far it flattens just fine with regular size DMT, problem is soaking this thing, it needs a bucket :)

haha... yeah, my first giant naniwa is like that too... i love using it, but i hate soaking it. I've had that stone for years now and i'm not even close to 1/2 way through it.
