FWIW, there is no full stainless Itinomonn - it's a semi-stainless core clad in stainless (he calls it StainLess which, I guess, can be a little bit misleading)

The 6k is a nice stone for sure. I owned one for a brief period of time but ended up selling it because I prefer softer, muddier finishing stones. Stu
both itonomonn western and full stainless seem to have very flat profile
matus, yoshikane skd looks AWESOME, too bad only hammered version is
