- verified customerI ordered this stone to see what all the fuss was about. As it is at the cheaper end of J-nat prices I wasn't expecting much. Up till now I have been largely satisfied with my kitiyama as a finisher but I never could get the edge I really wanted. I have now just honed two knives as a test - one in white#1 and the other in blue super - the results for both have been instant and dramatic. With little or no slurry the stone quickly took the kitiyama level of finish to a whole new level. This stone cuts fast and smooth and while being quite hard actually has a buttery feel. This is completely different to say a ark translucent which is extremely slow to cut and glassy on hard steels. I am very impressed with the feedback and results for such a cheap J-nat and would definatey recommend this to anyone who wants to find that next level of keeness at a reasonable price. Obviously it won't make a dull knife sharp but if you are not entirely happy with what your current finisher is doing for you then definately grab one of these babies.
