Fellow sharpening enthusiasts,

My wife surprised me with a used sharpening stone she saw for sale. After flattening it as it was quite dished I tried it on my Kikuichi TKC. It is a medium/soft stone that soaked quickly (2-3mins) and it left a very biting hair popping sharp edge. I'm guessing it is in the 2-3k range but I could be waaay off. Anybody have any clues on what it is? Thanks!

The kanji means "high grade whetstone," a general description.

I hope someone can id it from the base and the tone. Good luck! :)

Thanks for the info! For the $3 my wife paid I was expecting complete junk but it cut surprisingly well.

Looks to dark to be the 3k, looks more like the 1k.

Jeff and Franz,

I appreciate the help! For the $3 my wife spent I'll find a use for it. If anything it will be a good practice stone.
