Photo is current. The Ozuku Asagi is a full size version of the very popular "Koppa" that we also sell. It has a very fine grain and is very hard. This stone is an excellent finishing stone and works quite well with razors and high end kitchen knives. Mr. Imanishi was willing to sell these stones to us recently. He grades these stones high quality with an approximate grit range of 15K-20K. There are 2 stamps on the top of each stone that are easily legible. Measures approximately 75.5mm wide by 200mm long and 34mm thick. It weighs about 3 Pounds.
I just feel compelled to tell you that yours is the most ridiculously informative site of this nature I have ever come across.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
Very grateful such a dedicated and informative group of people provide excellent steel at competitive prices with superior customer service! A million thank yous!
