    Takashima Tomae vs Majiyama vs Shinden Suita vs Tamagoiro Tomae

    I still have my Takashima from a few years back (well, though it is in cargo now). Nice choice

    Uses for 1200 Atoma, Experience Ordering from Metalmaster?

    I've never waited that long from him. But it's almost as if he's trying to build up the mystery - will it come? when? what will it be like? Having watched him for some time, I think he buys stock, posts, sells and sends it when he has a bit of time, but there could be gaps in between

    Question about storing rare knife

    This reminds me of some thread or comment in the past where someone had used camellia oil for storage, and not for long, only to find that there was some reaction. On another note, I'm not sure why at this point no one has suggested a 0-gravity vacuum chamber. If secure, this would have to...

    Big list of Jnats!

    Last few hours for me to sell. Only 15, 34, 37 and 38 are left. Some explanations in case any of these may still appeal to someone. 15) Iyo - had a question above about these and gave an answer. Also a photo of this one if you'd like to look. 34) Shobu - this one I should have...

    Big list of Jnats!

    This is what's left and will only be able to sell for the next few hours, so let me know asap if anyone would like something more. Most likely will be able to do some kind of discount/deal: Medium stones: 15) Iyo - 170x80x61mm - 1882g - *$70* 24) Ueno - 199x71x51 - 1781g - $100...

    Big list of Jnats!

    Iyo - that's the name of the stone, or Iyoto, from Shikoku somewhere (Ehime is the old name, I think). Stone with a big history, and supposedly the oldest 'known' stone mined well before all the Kyoto ones. There are different types I'm not really familiar with - 330mate seems to sell all...

    Big list of Jnats!

    I forgot to list the size of this stone previously, but had a few questions about it: 36) Shobu iromono vintage - 184x64x25mm - 700g - $130. A little smaller than normal, but nice price for the quality. Picture above

    Big list of Jnats!

    Yes, similar. Sword-wise, I've read that Aizu were considered a substitute for Kaisei, and Ikarashi for Aizu. (May not have been everywhere, as these three stones are all from eastern Honshu, and I think stones had a more local reputation in ages past.) I like all three, have another Kaisei...

    Big list of Jnats!

    Yes, it does, though I don't polish swords. From what I know, for the polishers the Aizu was considered a substitute for Kaisei and Ikarashi as a substitute for Aizu. That might not have been everywhere, though, as all 3 are from the eastern (for me northern, but they'll say eastern) part of...
