    Unbelievable that the koppas are still here with so many (new) members looking for natural stones at the moment. All three look like a great starting point for JNATs without breaking the bank.

    I thought the same thing as I slash the prices, lol. Every single one of these are clean polishers, used by me and sealed in cashew. They are all easy, muddy stones, and the shobu's offer that unmistakably clean Shobudani polish. *shrug* None of them are thin either. Pretty substantial rocks.

    I am very interested in stones, I just can't track what's for sale and what isn't. What's the size of the weird one?

    Maruoyama - sold
    Shobu Iromono - sold
    Pink aka-pin - sold
    Weird aka-pin - $75
    Shobu Murasaki - $375

    Now that its sold, I am going to honestly say, that Shobu iromono was one of my favorite koppa. If it werent for making room for huge stones, it would stay with me forever. Enjoy.

    $160+SH - Aiiwatani Koppa 145x78x30mm, 7-8k super soft stone. Easy Kasumi polish.

    20200307_091100.jpg

    $100+SH - Aiiwatani koppa 145(longest, 125mm shortest)x76x35mm, 6-8k super easy kasumi polish. I dug out a weird line to be on the safe side a long time ago, but knowing what i do now, it's probably safe. If not, dig it out. Again. Doesnt effect polish dug out.

    So, what’s weird about it? Just the way it looks, or something about performance? I can’t really tell why you’d call it weird from the pics.

    Good question :D

    Its appearance mostly. Its not the fastest cutter but polishes evenly. Almost like a takashima to me. 6-7kish with a lighter effect on the soft steel as opposed to dark.

    The weirdness is mostly the crazy eye on the stone. I'll take another pic this evening. Apologies for being vague.
