    Nartuaki Karasu Momiji Suita
    Hehe very long name but true, that stone have almost all appearances in it, in the middle layer of the stone there are 20mm very dark layer of Karasu so with time it will be very hard stone, but now it is very good stone for knives. Also line is not toxic or can not be field.
