Meara a new natural that beats anything I have see

Sun Nov 25, 2012 5:59 pm

Very rarely do I say a stone I a super must have gotta get it if you love naturals, well this time I have, it's called the Meara which loosely translates to pre-finisher, well to me it is the most perfect finisher in the medium list I can think of, if you make a slurry and this is by far a muddy stone it's comes in at about 4-5 k after that I sharpened the Aeb-l 240 with just plain water and it left I would say almost if not an 8 k finish which is toothy and cuts like a mother. I am the first one to test this to my knowledge and it is a winner if you want to leave it as is off the stone or if you want to make a jump to a yagonoshima asagi that's your business but I think its the perfect edge coming off any j-nat I have ever seen and most of you know I have seen a lot, the stone had beautiful black streaks running through it that really show themselves when wet. If the other mods will indulge my for a few out of place pics I would like to show the stone and its markings along with the edge it leaves. I will be doing videos shortly as I am healing from a surgery that limits my time and I want to give this stone all the justice it deserves. I purchased this from ken Schwartz with just a middle finisher or jumper to something higher but I think this stone will surpass its legacy.

That is just a couple shots, I will do a video soon as I can to cutting ability or just trust in me in that I have never steered anyone wrong and get in touch with ken or I to purchase this sleeper that's going to leave a long legacy. Peace and prosperity, jmbullman

It's a very slippery slope that I fell down once. Money needed elsewhere in the knife hobby these days.

Synthetics do the job very nicely and are much cheaper. :)

I understand perfectly and I also use synthetics also as u know but u and most know me as old school and like that feeling and it was how I was taught, u can understand that, I was just introducing a new j-nat that I believe is something special. Peace and prosperity my friends and I understand ever aspect of where you are coming from. Jmbullman
