    I bought this raw ore and flatened one side from Watanabe. He claims its from Kouzaki. It has a crack on the side I flatened (I didnt notice any misbehavior of that crack on my edge ). I laquered other sides heavily to keep it compact. Still not decided how to cut it and even if. Its not completed. But Already works!

    Its a gorgeous 2000-4000 medium grit I bought him Ikarashi to help to get from AI1000

    That thing has 4,5kg :D Its harder Aoto and needs time to slury. Many goma dots and nice navy blue.

    So far as busy chef I use it every day and it keeps mi knife bitty sharp to get me through 50kg of meat.

    I had a Kouzaki Aoto (really nice stone on a holder) and sold it. That was a mistake. A really unique stone.

    Guys you dont consider that crack a problem dont you? I was trying to find a possible problem, but other than stone splitting which I stopped by laquer I have not found. Also are nicely shaped stones more valuable? I somehow dont see point now to cut it or shape it. It works so I guess Its my call to be satisfied anyways. Thanks.
