    Just in case, would it be a good idea to test this new lot by posting some scandalous remarks? Gotta break 'em in, you see.

    Jeez, big question. Yes, I have Takashima and like it a lot. They're not the fastest stones, but unless you're sharpening professionally at a high volume or in a pro kitchen and need speed I don't...

    'Awasedo' means 'finishing stone' and I think 'myokakudani' is the just name of a valley, and so doesn't have particular significance. From what I know all the recent ones will have been mined in...

    Already SPF ;)



    Could be good if you want a harder stone, but Mr Aframes (I forget his name) I think let slip and called it a 'hone' at some point which could be revealing about how he imagines...

    Yep. A bit finer and harder and faster than Ikarashi, but they were mined not far from where Ikarashi were so not a big surprise.

    Based on trying 3 stones and research, I think Aizu came in 2...

    Okay - Andrey posts so many photos that I thought I should contribute one. This is of a rare Aizu, one of my fav stones and one you don't hear talked of much, though there are a few blog entries out...

    Sounds good.



    Doubt it. Uchigumori shouldn't be black. Tsushima maybe? Bit of a dark aoto? Probable Tsushima.

    Sure, at $50 or less ($30 or less in Japan without shipping) I think there's no risk.

    What stones are those? Mr Razor Magnus might be right that those are harder, but hard to tell. Experiment with your Hakka slurry and technique, I say, and see how close you can get to what you...

    Yes, tell us what you've used so far.



    That sounds fine, or at least it wouldn't do any harm. If I remember, your hakka is more on the coarser side (I could be wrong). However, slurry can...

    Actually, of those I've only ever used the Arashiyama but I'm sure they're all great options in the sense that they're easy and pleasant to sharpen on.

    There might be other factors to consider,...

    Rami (like with the Hakka) there are videos out there. I have seen some from Maxim in the past, polishing kitaeji with fingerstones.

    However, try this instead and see if it works: use some fine...

    I guess the irony is people buy the kitaeji for their wonderful damascus finish, which lasts only as long as until you first use it, and then ... well, I'm not sure if there's any advantage to them...

    Get into Indian food if you aren't already. You'd have to need more than a normal lifetime to know all the cuisines there, and it has to be the world centre of veg-ism.

    I don't have many synthetics, but I have this one and like it a lot. Too bad, I've thought, that the great hazy finish it leaves gets rubbed off if you go to a higher stone, which most people would...

    Yeesh. Even more reason to take off that top layer after you buy one.

    Lucky guy. You live in the toishi heartland, and of course you can first try your stones at a place like Tanaka's.

    ... (Later) The first character on the koppa's just 正 which was hard to figure out, but obvious. Anyway, the koppa is just labelled as a honyama, a genuine honyama finishing stone. Enjoy
