Hideriyama Tomae , Japanese Natural

Sun Mar 30, 2014 12:31 am

So ive been trying to get an opportunity to use this stone for awhile now. Decided to touch up the straight razor , not that it particularly needed it but :)

Anyways , mud was built with a TomoNagura and worked well for 15 minutes or so , pausing only to wet down the dovo so the accumulated mud would slough back onto the stone.

Fun stone to use , hard , leaves a bautifull finish. Ken said it is softer than the Yaginoshima Asagi, I found this to be true , also seems slightly finer. Still more than hard enough for use on straights. Kens getting more of these in larger sizes.

Ken managed to track down a massive TomoNagura for me.

What grit range do you think this falls in? saying in comparison to your yagonashima or your nakayama? I love the yellowish color of this stone, easier to see the swarf.

Kens the man , his notes to me on the stones perfectly reflect my findings.

For a comparison we are talking about stones that are encroaching (in some cases surpassing) shapton 30k levels of performance.
