This should be an interesting thread to follow! I will have to keep my camera close by next time I sharpen!

Here's one from a while back - a Kouzaki Aoto mud slurry.

Here's a pic I just like. It is a Mukimono (single bevel knife used mostly for Japanese decorative garnishing) being sharpened on an Aoto. Note than the mud is holding the blade on the stone. I really enjoy using this style of knife! And I enjoy using Aoto for sharpening. It's hard not to have a good day doing this work!

The sink bridge is a thick piece of granite cut to fit the sink so it doesn't move at all (rock solid :) ). The coarse side of the granite is face up, providing texture to keep things in place.

I just like the elemental feel of the stone, mud, metal and knife all together - a marriage of earth, air, water and fire.

Wow those are pretty cool. I haven't had a chance to sit and learn sharpening yet so forgive my lack of knowledge but do you get that with every stone or will only certain stones produce slurry patterns like that?

Great picks in there. Shaun your first one has a very 'The Creation of Adam' feel.

@Melampus - For some reason your picture reminds me of pictures of Nebula. Here's one of the Horse head Nebula. Is it just me or do the stars (larger particles) and gas clouds in these nebulae remind you of swarf patterns too? Even when I look up at the sky, I have 'toishi thoughts' LOL.

@ Erilyn No not all stones produce enough mud to do this. Softer naturals like Aoto are particularly nice for this. The 1200 Nubatama Bamboo is also a great muddy stone for this too. The mud pattern is created by using a series of short strokes when sharpening. I should do a video of this. This is not something you would do easily with Shaptons :) For finer stones, there are other techniques when playing in the mud.

@ cedarhouse If my mud poetry' will help sell stones or help my customers, I'm glad to get mud poetry requests. Call anytime 209 612 2790 :) :)
