    Huge and clean Tsushima, almost feels like a harder and finer aoto
    Shobu suita from Jon that ive had for a while now, love it, its probably my most used stone atm
    Super clean and fine hakka tomae, a bit harder than others I have but is buttery smooth and leaves great contrast
    Awesome nakayama kiita tomae, becoming my new fave, lovely feedback, not too hard, instant swarf, leaves a nice kasumi contrast with a mirror edge
    The tsushima kinda dwarfs the rest, but the nakayama is 206×75×36

    Hi Panda, tsushima is not as fast as a Kouzaki aoto, mine is not even as fast as my green aoto, but it leaves a nice edge with some teeth for those who like harder stones. It works best with some slurry and with easy to sharpen carbon steel. It is usually a big stone, very consistent and with a white slurry.

    Thought I'd share this super cool shobu suita I got from Jon recently. Its fast, hard and fine. Leaves a killer edge, nice, refined and sticky. Also leaves a bright kasumi finish. I think it has some cool patterns on it as well. 2nd pic shows a quick back and forth stroke with a test knife, 3rd pic is a few more strokes, then the finish it leaves after about a minute or so. I take crappy pics so the hagane doesnt look as clear and shiny in the pics as it does in real life.
