    Reg diamond plate: i preffer not to use it on fine expensive stones as nagura, but here it really helps a lot. Botan works great on it. The stone needs some " kick". The stone is consistant, hard, has a very uniform body, is also heavier in comparisson to same size " normal" Aoto ( wich means is harder and finer). And considering it's price+ Maksim's service it's a gift!! Use this possibility! Recommended !

    How about a Takashima - from JNS or aFrames, etc. However, there are lots of awasedo (finishers) for under 300; they are generally the tomae layer, but there are also some suita too. As usual, you're never quite sure how they'll be until you try them.

    Oh, the Nakayama is nice! I've just got one, i love it. Is a bit hard, but rather quick and it looks awsome!
    Congratulations, jklip13!

    The good solution would be ( if you look at JNS Maksim's offer) :
    - an Okunomon Lv 3 - very affordable price and a good stone as well - hurry or i do it
    - or Oohira Tomae Lv 4 - a rather hard one, but take a set-of-3-Naguras ( i would advise a Tomo Nagura as well) - and you have a pretty cool hard" finishing board" with slurry generators, that will allow you to change the gritness of the stone using different Naguras, and to finish with it's own slurry ( will be rather hard to get ir, but..) - if you need the semi-polished edge. The Kasumi or Mirror is anyhow better to see on single bevelled knives rather then on double bevelled. On western knives you polish the cutting edge. Oohira ggives you this. Or just stop on Toma Nagura. That will be a pretti cool set( Oohira+Naguras)
    - a Takashima ( + Naguras)
    - an Atagoyama - this is more expensive, but looks to a very nice finisher. And the size........ This is a real BRICK!!
    So, you have enough to choose from

    I saw that Nakayama on the website and I was ready to buy it... then I realized it was sold!

    I've been trying to get my hands on a nice nakayama kiita but no luck yet. Much of what's out there is hard and not ideal for knives...
