    Looks like it would be a challenge to flatten.

    That was my thought too, but when i looked up a pic compared to a regular King stone the one in the vid seemed bigger



    Does the size cause any problems?

    At first glance I though it was a 1k kikuichi!

    that was my first thought too!

    can you imagine the size of a DMT XXC you would need?? it would cost like $200
    It's like my ol' grandpappy used to say; "The less one makes declarative statements, the less apt he is to look a fool in retrospect"

    so far it flattens just fine with regular size DMT, problem is soaking this thing, it needs a bucket
