I also have no small amount of envy for your growing Maruoyama suita collection.
    Agree 100% with your assessment and I find it has overlap with maruoyama shiro suita too in terms of the edge it leaves. It's a best of both worlds stone. Very chuffed with it.

    Ok, did anyone else pick up one of these?

    YAGINOSHIMA ASAGI LV 2-4

    http://www.japanesenaturalstones.com...-lv-2-4-a1209/

    I managed to snag one because I was intrigued by a stone that could go from lv 2 to lv4.

    Did anyone else here get one? It is, as Maksim states, a very hard stone. I worked with it for a bit and despite my best efforts couldn't get it to act like anything but a lv 4 for more polishing than sharpening. I tried a combination of nagura's to work up different types of mud and even focused on managing how much water I was throwing into the mix.

    I have no regrets on getting it, esp at that price, I just want to learn to use it to it's full potential.

    Any thoughts?

    Hi hi
    First of all- check it on different steels.
    My experience says- Yaginoshima tends to be great on stainless and dead on carbons.
    Not bad on powder steel as well.
    Please tell if you have checked it on several steels, i mean several stainless ( different hardness).
    It's funny, but especially this mine gives stones being highly specialized on some tasks.
    Cheers
    Andrey
