Hi Mark:

Thanks for your previous reply.

If I am going to get only one J-natural stone(one that will do the finishing or polishing task after my 6000 or 8000 grit stones), which one, without breaking the bank, you will recommend to me.

Thanks in advance.

S.

If I were go for 1 stone on the site currently it would be the little Nakayama. It's 1/6 the price of the one I'm getting next week and really sweet.

Yaginoshima asagi. Not as hard as the Nakayama, which is more optimal for razors (and a nice stone), but an excellent Natural for knives.

Plus 1 for the yagonoshima asagi my second is a han han haven't seen any thing those 2 stones won't leave a beautiful finish on yet. Learned that from my sensay ken. Peace to all, jmbullman
I also second master marks suggestion also either of the 3 and you won't lose nothing but home runs.

Hi Guys:
Thanks for all the helps. I received the nakayama and ozuku today from Mark, the ozuku is so hard that it didn't generate any mud if any, even I used a slurry stone. The Nakayama generated more mud than the Ozuku, stay away from Ozuku if anyone wants a muddy stone. I still like the stones though, they both cut well and gave hazy finishes. The Nakayama gave a little bit more bite more the Ozuku did. And both stones worked better on carbon knives than on SS, especially on super blue, these stones had great results.

I would like to get the Yaginoshima asagi as ken suggested, but need to think about it cause it is quite a bit of money.

Thanks again.
