Finally- Gesshin Jinzo Aoto (synthetic aoto)
I know a lot of you have been waiting for this for a long time... its finally here (pics, measurements, and video coming soon...)
This is the stone i use most often to create beautiful misty finishes on knives i sharpen here at the store. Even when i do fake kasumi finishes (on solid steel knives), this stone is used. Here's an example:
I've also used it to create super smooth and even finishes on honyaki knife blade roads-
and here's a awase yanagiba (clad or 2-ply yanagiba) with a kasumi finish done on this stone:
we decided to have the stone be $5 off for the first month to make it a bit easier for people to try. The special price only lasts until aug 31st though.
Hope you guys enjoy it.
