It's rare for us to find a really nice Hakka stone that is in this size. The mine it comes from is the Hakka mine and the particular layer is the Tomae layer. This stone was sourced by our friend Shosui Takeda. This particular stone is a muddy stone and somewhat softer.

    Really hard to come by stone now a days. Very muddy and soft but leaves a great finish. Does dish on the fast side but other than that a real pleasure to use.

    This Hakka stone is soft, and produces mud/slurry fast. I'd rate it 2.5. 5 being the hardest. It's not suitable for razors but I bought it for sharpening my knives. It's forgiving to use than harder stones (Suita, Asagi, Ozuku). Beginners shall find it easy to use.

    It cuts regular German faster than Japanese steel like Kikuichi damascus. It gives a haze finish. So I'd estimate the grit around 10,000 which is fine and almost ideal for knives. Finer grit gives a sharper edge but difficult to maintain. Few hard hits against the chopping board can dull the edge easily.

    Thanks to Mark for patiently answering my questions and giving a nice video review on a Sunday.

    I gave it 5 stars - judging from size, performance relative to synthetic stones, and price when I bought it.
