Nubatama Bamboo 1K Gold. This stone is slightly porous, quickly saturating. It produces a fine mud, is pretty hard and rapidly produces a fine mud mostly composed of metal swarf. Perhaps a bit harder than the Ume 1k small stone. No glazing noted.

The knife used is a Kikuichi gyuto. I believe this stainless knife is VG10 or a similar steel. The video is short because the stone was done much faster than expected. Very impressive stone! A very hard stone, something a Shapton user would like who appreciates harder stones. A bit harder than the Ume 1k smaller stone or stones similar to it. Also razor users would find this attractive. People who like a muddy stone should look at the 1500 Nubatama stone instead.

Did not like the feel of this stone at all. It feels like it has a "drag" to it. The stone is very porous,it took a week to dry after use. It seemed to cut ok but nothing overly impressive. There are better stones for the money.

Good feed back and aggressive for a 1K.

Used this to follow a 600 on a Moritaka 250mm AS. Three light passes and all the 600 scratches were gone.

Aggressive for a 1K and with a light touch leaves a nice finish. Used this on a Moritaka 250mm AS this afternoon following a 600. 3 light passes and the 600 scratches were gone. Slow to dish too.
