finally getting around to testing some new natural stones we got in... starting with the coarse stuff and going from there...

I wouldn't mind having the one on the left just to have it. I get first dibs if you decide to get rid of it. :)

I have an Amakusa from another vendor. Kinda slow for a 800-1000 grit stone, but leaves a nice edge. Builds up some mud after a while, too. I guess I am spoiled by the Bester 1200; that's a fairly fast stone! I do love the coloring in the Amakusa though!

"wouldn't mind" is the most interesting phrase.... I hear this from Jon a lot. He wouldn't mind keeping all our knives and stones (if I'm not staring with angry eyes)

Angry eyes? We've all seen your photos, Sara, and I can't imagine you with angry eyes. Maybe that's the problem.

Actually, I wouldn't mind if my wife had the same problem!
