3 people found this review helpfulA very nice finishing stone. It feels slightly softer/chalky than the Kitayama but if used with very light pressure it'll create a very refined edge. I've used this with and without a Nagura and I find for stropping it works better without mud. I think the mud gets particles from the knife that don't have a chance to break down when stropping and those particles could dull edge. I also like using green chromium oxide on a piece of flattened hard maple for stropping.
