    Jon,

    Beautiful stone. Your description says this:

    It is a medium hardness, leaving little to no streaking around the curves of bevels.

    Could you explain that streaking a little--I'm not familiar with the concept. Thanks---

    on harder stones, you will notice that around curves, streaks develop due to the lack of mud and inability of the store to conform to the surface of the knife. See the bottom knife in the attached image...
