This a good middle grit natural stone (about 800-1,000 grit) and is commonly used in a 2 stone progression with a good natural finishing stone like the Ohira for kitchen knives. The stones is aproximately 220mm x 70mm x 60mm and weighs aproximately 5 lbs.
a wonderful and effective natural stone. Scuffed up with a 220 Atoma it cuts fast and very even. Let the paste break down,keep giving it an occasional "splash" and it will leave a very fine polish,maybe equal to 3-6k. Love it!!

Just added this stone to my line up,not out of necessity,but rather just for fun. I am absolutely amazed at this stone,for a few factors.
First,the stone is huge! If you won a Green Brick,then you’ll know what I’m talking about. The patterns within the stone are absolutely beautiful,and look even better when the stone is wet.
It produces mud rather quickly,and cuts as fast as any other 1k I’ve used. For the price,you aren’t going to find anything better. At least I haven’t anyway.
"If you have the means,I highly recommend picking one up." (Ferris Bueller.) :o) Solid 5 stars.
This stone is more than worth the money,cuts fast wears slow has that earthy smell I love if I ever wear it out on my 150th bday I will get another. I use it in a 3-4 stone progression depending on the knife and what I am cutting,wouldnt trade it for the world.
Amazing stone I love this stone fast cutting slow wearing and produces a great edge everyone should own this stone.
