    Wow, lot of nice stones in the J-Nat club lately.
    This just arrived from the Badgertooth collection. Maruoyama shiki uchigumori. Cool stone.
    Played with it a little while tonight.
    Different from Ohira uchigumori both in look and feedback. Love the veins of namazu that run through it. The color and contrast remind me of the white bellies of catfish. Feels almost like a cross between awasedo and aoto. When working an edge it gives off that "micro crackle" feel and sound that aoto have. Nice bitey edge on aebl, ginsan and white steel.
    Gives up slurry on a wide bevel with a little pressure. Fairly fast and looks good for kasumi work. I'm going to enjoy getting to know this stone.
    Thanks Otto

    She's a beauty Doug and I think there's a lot of nuance to get to know and explore with that stone. Namazu could not have been more apt a name than for this stone.

    WOOW!
    Thats also the Otto-Stone-Avalanche!
    Very cool stones and you are lucky that the Suita broke into 2 Suitas and not two chunks of debris.
    Also that Maruyami Shiki looks very good! The namazu looks like Gold veins on the picture and the color is very dark. Cool stone.

    Do you intend to buy all Aizus in Japan Otto? ) because 1 of 5 is pretty crazy!
    Well since they all differ a bit i am glad my first one is spot on and fits me best.

    HihO!

    Finally after a 4 month world tour "japan-germany-back to japan-germany" i got my NOS Narutaki.
    I already got a red one also NOS from the same label and this time its a ocre/green one.

    So it has all the flashy stamps on it and the sticker was never removed before .. ahhhh removing it was pure porn like if you remove the plastic protection foil from a new cellphone or tv !

    Ok i used a small Shiro Koma Nagura to protect the stamps and holy karate!!! even with slower nagura slurry (slower than diamond plate) it gave me an instant dark mud after 5 strokes.. with more it turned pretty sick dark..
    And thats not all its polishing as fast! removes scratches instantly and now i have porn grin burned in my face that wont go away )

    So jackpot!

    now thats my third narutaki.. nice stones!!

    i also want a job that pays like a good job
    well because i am mad and bought stones like a maniac so that i lived on mastercard after the first week of the month because the last months stone bill made my bankaccount instant zero for the rest of the month ..
    Nope.. it was just pure madness and dondt look for stones when you are drunken ) .. it was to often that i bought something.. well very often.

    So this one is a real hit like i predicted. i only had some crappy overbright pictures of the stone. but it had the same sticker like the other narutaki that i already had.
    i simply adjusted the colors and contrast until it matched . so i knew that its actually a ocre color stone like i wanted.



    thats pretty close to the actual stone
    only 3 to go.. wakasa and orange-red nakayama remover of scratches.

    The struggle is real for a rockhound. I'm struggling to decide which of my children or organs or, as a last resort, knives and stones to sell to make that MasterCard look a little less scary.
