    My expensive karasu Jnat bought from Japan. Not sure which mine it's from but definitely collector's grade with all corners and sides in nice shape.
    Enjoy the pix.

    Whoa, that's quite a stone. Looks totally regular and clean, uniform shape, and even has flat-looking skin covering the whole bottom, just like Japanese love. Must have cost a bit! How hard and fine is it?

    My new great quality Shobu Iromono- very fine, reasonably hard, works extremely well on high-carbons, as an ultimate finisher after good Suitas

    And a very fine Takaoyama- very nice finisher, first of all for high quality stainless steel.
    Works great on hard steels as well ( both PM and full Damascus)

    Not sure how hard or fine the stone is. Haven't had to sharpen much lately and still a beginner. But chanced upon this great stone and couldn't resist it's beauty.

    Just to add some explanations: why use Jnats???
    See- this is a Shigefusa Kuroushi, i have specially finished 1 side with very fine Wa- Powder, you see the mirror, the other side quickly done with Ohira Uchigomori( fingerstone)- do i need to explain more?? .

    Yes! No, just jokin' Good work on both, I think. Obviously you get a lot more from the knive with #2. #1 might as well be mono-steel.

    No, Asteger!! These are 2 sides of same Shigefusa Kuroushi Petty, 1 side polished with Wa-Powder( synthetic) , the other side with Uchigomori! This is ONE knife, no monosteel, SAME!!
    That's why i told- no need to discuss why to use or not to use Jnats- i wanted to show the difference, is better and easier to explain why is it so different.
    This is about the stones, not about the knives.

    Andrey - that is really cool example of what kind of finish different stones leave. Thanks.
