    Nah...that's a typo. It's 20,000 yen!

    I have heard of some high grade sword polishing stones going for as much as $3-4K, but not $20K.

    The most expensive stone I saw was 5,000,000JPY.

    The most expensive stone I had a try to sharpen was a 200,000JPY a big egg color Nakayama stone.
    It had a very nice sharpening feeling.

    So that 20k is much cheaper.
    If it is worth that money I do not know. You must try it before you buy.

    That'd be badass. Flatten the top, put a little chair next to it, so people can sharpen on your grave.

    This is sounding better and better. Head stone can run 10-20 k and that's at today's prices. My fiancÚ being in the bizz would understand " proper funeral planning" I could then buy the stone and use it till I die having saved on all those inflationary dollars. That way maybe some of you knife nuts would visit my grave. Think of it,

    boy I'd like to try/see what using a 20k j-nat is like, I got let's go visit chef Niloc's grave
    it could be like a be like a pilgrimage.

    When I frequented the board more often, this would have sounded like a great plan... having cut back on indulging my knife nut desire to read every thread.... well it sounds a bit "crazy," and "cult-like."

    how do they price these naturals? is it supply and demand, or is it the value of the sum of its parts.
