    How exactly do you use them? Do you chamfer the edge of the corner a little bit more to have a small flat area?

    No, not specific chamfering but lots of stones seem to come shaped like SIM cards

    Mystery nakato time. I haven't a clue. Too soft for Tajima. Not Aizu though it's cut very similarly. Not binsui.

    Exactly. You shouldn't have sharp corners. The area you use for should be rounded, not really flat but continuously curved.
    Even in a " sim-card" form it's useful to get a proper shape. In this case i make 2 curved zones- for bigger and smaller works.
    The point is to have a curve, not a flat zone. The flat zone is your main sharpening area.
    Then you have at least 2 tools in one: flat for flat sharpening, curved for aggressive and specific sharpening.
    The curve is great to work in the zone behind the edge, actually precise thinning.

    Thanks a lot Badgertooth and Andrey. I am definatelty gona try that! I am not a friend of sharpening out the very last low spot right away, and lose a lot of metal/time.

    @Badgertooth: that Mystery nakato looks crazy!
