    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.

    He asked for these to be identified. Plus, while he knows the first is an aoto, there are several kinds of aoto, and the label confirms Tamba. The koppa could be many kinds of stone, so all you can...

    ... (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

    Yes, the bigger one is a Tamba Aoto; I just had one on BST. The smaller one, a koppa, is a honyama gotogi - layered finishing stone. There's one kanji I can't make out, but will look again. The...

    Yes, a final against Germany would have been a good one, though I fear still a loss for Holland. The semis were decided on penalties, and seeing how Messi & Aguero were just...

    Not sure if you know, but actually that 1994 team is also regarded more as a pragmatic and not a classic Brazil side, though they did have Romario and Bebeto. The image of the team has been at odds...
