    Two new stones

    After a couple of years trying to resist, I am going down the slippery slope. Red Aoto from JNS and Takashima Awasedo from JKI. "Thanks", Maxim, and Jon and Sara.

    My latest 2 acquisitions
    Ozuko Mizuasagi for razor finishing -one of the hardest stones I have seen so far.

    Second is Ohira Suita, very hard but does not scratch soft cladding and makes very nice mirror with light haze on hard steel.

    1. That Ohira Uchigomori make me pee myself.
    2. I decided yesterday that I will, at some point in the future, have a JNat built into a countertop in my kitchen. This wall reminds me of that.
