They tend to leave mirror finish to the blade if not used with slurry and that mirror finish reflects all the scratches that were left from other stones. When using a hard finishing stone in such a manner a person can be mislead to think the stone is not fine, while in fact the person did not spend enough time on the stone.
    I was guilty of this when I fist got some of the harder ones, even Kizuyama at Lv 3.

    Put the above paragraph somewhere on your store and make sure you have a link to it from harder stone listing
