Some of my Nakayama Maruka Kiitas :)
I just love these stones !!! Nakayama Kiitas is usually much harder and finer then say from Ohira or other mines.
Very very expensive stones ! But beauty and performance is just hard to beat.
Price on them have skyrocket in the last couple of years. And the really hard and fine ones is more then 500 euro just for koppa or razor size, if you can find one :D
The Kiita colors vary from deep orange to lemon yellow

Here's the stones I have bought from some fella in Denmark...:)

I'll add a couple more from other places if that's ok with OP.

Anyways, here's the breakdown.

From left:
Red Aoto, Hakka Renge, Nakayama Asagi, Shoubudani Asagi, and the little one is a Oozuku Asagi.

After a couple of years trying to resist, I am going down the slippery slope. Red Aoto from JNS and Takashima Awasedo from JKI. "Thanks", Maxim, and Jon and Sara.

My latest 2 acquisitions
Ozuko Mizuasagi for razor finishing -one of the hardest stones I have seen so far.

Second is Ohira Suita, very hard but does not scratch soft cladding and makes very nice mirror with light haze on hard steel.

1. That Ohira Uchigomori make me pee myself.
2. I decided yesterday that I will, at some point in the future, have a JNat built into a countertop in my kitchen. This wall reminds me of that.
