    I have enjoyed threads created by others in this vein so perhaps adding one of my own will be fun for me and for the fellow addicts.

    Will post slow and steady over time, working to take better photos of things than the quick snaps I do for IG or BST.

    Thanks for looking!

    As promised, some additional and hopefully more attractive photos of the amazing work from Joe and Cody.

    If for any reason you're not aware of the work these two gentlemen do, please check them out. Absolute all stars.

    Very nice work. Looks great. How do you get the whitish look?

    When photos come out the knife blade looks white and black maybe is a light placement. Usually in real life the color would be somewhat black or dark grey with light gray.

    I got ya! That’s likely just exposure and light, yes.

    This is my bench Mikawa nagura.

    It's very unfortunate that this stone broke during shipping, but I was luckily able to salvage it. And I am beyond glad that I did, as it's one of my absolute favorites. I have not used it for edge work, but it's a lovely stone during polishing that bridges the gap between the start of a natural progression and moving toward pre-finishing stones like Aizu or a soft suita.

    Thanks for looking!
