Is a nagura provided with the Kitayama 8000 Grit Water Stone?

Yes, it's a synthetic nagura that is best used to clean the surface of the stone. It's coarser than the kitayama so I would not recommend it be used to build a slurry.

Why is that Jason? Should you not use a lower grit to build a slurry on your stone?

Chris, It would be like trying to put a smooth, uniform finish on wood using 400 grit sandpaper that you had just mixed a bunch of 220 grit particles into. It won't give the expected results that the stone is capable of delivering.

This ^

The lower grit will mess it up. Also, the kitayama really doesn't benefit from a mud so there's no point in trying to make one.

So when I flatten my stones using my diamond plate should I wash them before I use them? It doesn't really build a lot of mud but it seems to start it on its way. Seems like with the diamond plate you wouldn't be mixing in the lower grit particles. Does this seem right?

Yes, I'd wash the sones after flattening. The diamond plate might leave some particles, at least until it's broken in.
