Hi Mark,

Firstly i just want to say that the product i bought a few months ago was pretty sweet and im very happy with it. I ordered a 240mm corian konosuke gyuto and an ultimate edge bag. So i say my thanks.

I now need help with a recommendation for a finishing stone and i cant decide which one because this is a first purchase on natural stones. Im not the best sharpener but i can sharpen my knives to the point that i can shave hairs with them.

I currently own a 2 stones i got from Konosuke. a #1000 grit pink baked stone and a #6000 grit lobster stone and a leather strop which i use to finish my knives.

i was looking at the ozukuyama asagi, the ozuku and the Ohira tomae natural stones.

Can you please recommend the best one for me. i was leaning towards the ozuku but im just concerned if it was too much of a big jump.

Thank you for your time,

Sincerly,

Gerald

Hi Gerald,

I use the Ohira Tomae all the time and I think it's an excellent finishing stone for kitchen knives. It's also a little easier to use since it's not as hard as the ozuku.

I would recommend you get the dmt mini slurry plate to get a mud started on the stone as well. It works really well:

GERALD <> The Ozuku is overkill on your HD, and the Yaginoshima is another superb option for you... superb.

You should consider a mid grit stone and a polishing stone somewhat softer than the ozuku. I would only consider using the small DMT or Atoma plates for middle grit stones as the slurry is going to be coarser than what you can achieve with a tomonagura.
