    Just a question: I doubt it, but I wonder if you ever see Tunisian plum tomatoes where you are. I've not been to Italy, but seeing as how Sicily is just a stone's throw away, you can imagine that...

    :groucho: Haha Excellent point. I guess some people can do this.

    All 3 stones look great, by the way. How does the Aiiwatani compare to the suita?

    Yes, I find the JNS photos are quite good at showing the real colours. I also like the slurry and finish photos, although I think it takes lots of experience for people to make sense of those.

    ;) I just got one like that too (not from JNS). Nice red Shobu in the photos, and your typical brown Kyoto finisher in real life. Luckily, it's still a very nice stone and reddish on the sides.

    Look above for an example. However, there should be various possibilities wherever you are and they shouldn't cost too much. If they're natural (a good thing, we assume) it's just shellac with...

    I think, when you were posting about your Ohira suita and re-lacquering it earlier in this thread, Andrey recommended a natural shellac from the UK.

    Thanks, P. As far as I know, you and I are the only people here with Natsuya (one of my favs). What do you normally use after yours? I'm wondering if you use something between it and your aoto.

    Is the Ikarashi too hard for your tastes? You wouldn't like Aizu then.

    I've got several other mediums. I can try a comparison for you if you give me a few days.

    Haha, I don't consider myself very knowledgeable at all with synths. I have a JNS 300 (or 320 - I forget) and like it, and Atoma plates of course, and another 400 which I don't like. Also, I'm sure...

    Nah, a Kobe cow would be too fatty and pampered, with soft soft flesh. I reckon that'd leave you with Lv0.0001 on the hardness scale, with no possibilities for any kind of useable edge. Totally...

    This is not a vegitable cleaver tho you can cut veggi's with it. It's good for birds ,meats,etc. I use it most to chop up frozen fruit for smoothies. It is the Tojiro Pro F-920 VG-10 core, rather...
