    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.

    Seeya ,daniel!
