    I think so. I suspect the reason this is so expensive is due to it's size.

That way maybe some of you knife nuts would visit my grave. Think of it,


    it could be like a be like a pilgrimage.

    It'd be on my NY state "to-do list". Just do it soon, I don't want to have to whack a guy just to check out what kind of kasumi this things got.

    With Iyo Nagura slurry! The first, Cutting speed is felt so rich.
    And the tenacity of slurry is also very rich. This is one of famous feature of Iyo.
    Next, the grit of slurry are shrunken as long as sharpened!!
    In the same time, cutting speed progressively decelerated.
    Blackish iron is suspend in the slurry very well!!!
    At last, appeared funny mist and haze.
    Even if Iyo was applied, the grit rose up!! What a amazing!!
    Much skill is necessary to rise up the grit of slurry.
    But, everyone can enjoy the help of slurry!!! Don't mind.
    Sounds like a winner!

    it is size, quality of the stone such as fineness speed of abrasion, uniformity. Then Karasu featured stones are very expensive, because it is a rare feature.
    This particular one is 9lb, and if it is all the way uniform I see the price justified. The seller however has a very spotty rep so I do not believe that stone is worth the money based on the pics provided.

    I dont think specialist sword polisher would buy his stones off ebay.

    So for me the seller is just taking his chance on getting rich kid buying it for any reason.

    Never-ever-ever

    At least these things have functional value... if you guys spend some time on the pricescope forums and see how much people pay for rocks there... jnats seem like a great deal.

    Its a good place to hangout for a day or two prior to buying a custom knife or a jnat... it makes the expense seem more reasonable. If I hang out there for a few more months, a Kramer may make sense...
