    Affordable Natural Stones & an offset Bread Knife

    For sale are a few smaller, entry-level natural stones. These make a great introduction to natural stones as they are affordable and their smaller size makes them useful for smaller kitchen knives or even razors or kogatana knives. I believe these would qualify as pre-polishing stones, leaving hazy finishes on both jigane and hagane. YMMV.

    Nowadays I don't have time to polish blades, just attaining functional sharpness for work purposes. Synthetic stones are all I use these days.

    All prices shipped and paypal'd in ConUS

    1. Ohira Tomae $70

    (originally from Metal Master: http://www.metalmaster-ww.com/product/198 )

    Little used, the edges have been chamfered and the stone cuts quickly for a natural

    2. Hideriyama Renge Suita $45

    (also from Metal Master: http://www.metalmaster-ww.com/product/246 )

    Also little used, it is a softer stone.

    3. Natural Blue Aoto $45

    (similar to one of the stones listed on this page: http://www.metalmaster-ww.com/product-list/37 )

    Quite muddy, its fun to work with albeit slow cutting. Leaves a pretty even finish. Comes with box.

    Current pics:





    Also for sale, Shun Damascus 8" Offset Serrated Bread Knife. $40

    Used for a few weeks at work for bread, got moved to a station that doesn't involve cutting any bread so no longer have a use.

    Willing to entertain offers on bundles.

    Thanks for looking!

    would the first two JNS be considered mid range I know already the Aoto is considered a good mid range stone before jumping to lets say 10k

    I would consider them midrange, both leave hazy finishes that fall somewhere between 2-5K. Not finishing stones IMHO, but great as a last stop for double bevels or a pre-polish for single bevels. I'm no expert on JNats, so YMMV

    Also,

    Aoto and Shun bread knife are SPF

    Pete, I didn't realize those were the stones you were selling so no need for the measurements. The set for 100 is a good deal. I just need to weigh it against my desire for full sized stones.

    I would like to purchase both stones. I tried to PM but the system does not permit it (yet, I guess as I just registered). Would you be able to send me a PM with your Paypal address?
