    Here's a terrible phone pic of my favourite natural. I'm shure you all know what it is.

    Nice one. A recent acquisition?

    Not really, I bought this one years ago.

    Just received it this week. 'Deal of the day' score, though I'd had my eye on it for a while So far so good!

    Opening the package it seemed quite soft and chalky. However, it's harder than I'd thought, has a smooth feeling when sharpening, and give off much slurry, which is a good thing for me.

    I've sharpened a couple of knives now and it left a very nice toothy edge on my white#2 nakiri all on its own. Was impressed.

    You have to flatten it when you buy it, though. I have a Naniwa flattening stone and a 400 Atoma and I used them both, but took about an hour. However, this was a good way to get aquainted with the stone and I didn't mind. I just watched something on the tube as I did it.

    Oops, edit above: meant to write that it doesn't give off much slurry, at lease relative to my expectations

    Guys I have a quick question/ I have Ohira Tomae lv4 but I didn't had a lot of occasion to use it. I've used it on Ura side od deba and i sharpened Kato on it. How do you use it?? Do you have any suggestions or tricks?? Which knives do you sharpen on it? Thanks in advance.

    Hi

    On ura side i usually make light slurry with nagura and take it on slurry, it make more uniform finish and also helps remuve a burr.

    But on that hard stone make sure to make slurry before you use it, and you can use it on any knife
