of course I can always pick up a coarser synthetic and switch to polishing on the naturals (both razors and knives - although the nagura progressions are just so fascinating). I keep telling myself "patience grasshopper" - but I've got a hardcore case of OCD to overcome here lol
re: using a photo hosting site - I just may do that! I'll devote some time over the weekend to figuring it out :) thanks!
I just realized I have posted only s few of my stones so here a few pics of some of the rest:
Red/Green/Blue aoto in order of fineness, the blue Aoto is the hardest I have seen barely makes any mud, super fine for Aoto.
Wakasa- razor finisher but also not scratchy on soft iron. Has beautiful colors Asagi-Kiita mix.
#24 Atagoyama kiita
Ohira Renge Suita -makes the coolest pink slurry ever, has a lot of renge
all of them... tho I must say the Ohira Renge is just incredibly gorgeous, and I love the Hakka lines and the Nakayama coloration
Again, I'll be sure to post some pics over the weekend :)
I can't wait till I get out of this terminal broke period in my life, I really need a few more stones for my razors...
At least I can join the J-nat club. These are my first stones and I hope not last. White Binsui and Red Aoto drom JNS. Can't wait to use them. Thanks Maxim
Congratz with your first JNATS !
HF on sharpening way =)
