Mark sent me a suji to use as a mule to do a little stone review. In this video I use the Naniwa 150 Omura, Arashiyama 1K & 6k, Naniwa 2k Green brick of Joy, and the 10k Imanishi.

This is not my best video IMO and I should have broke it up into a few parts but it is what it is. I believe most of my problem was feeling as if I was using the wrong knife for the stones, it kinda consumed my thought during the sharpening.

Anyways, enjoy and feel free to comment.

Very nice video. Glad you were frank with what you were thinking about during the video gave us a bit of realistic insight as to what might go on in the mind of a person with this level of sharpening skills.

Editorially, I agree it could have been broken up into multiple parts but I also feel it may ruin the flow of the video.

I would also enjoy some clarification as to what you were thinking when you said it was the wrong knife fr the stones? Some insight would be greatly appreciated.

First, thank you for watching.

The wrong knife for the stones or the wrong stones for the knife is something you get a feel for after sharpening many blades with different stones. The Omura stone for example would be better suited to a yanagi and its large bevel and when in the high grits with a traditional style knife I simply don't like polishing stones such as the Imanishi. I would have much rather finished with a natural stone or one of my other "natural like" finishing stones. For me its the feel of the edge that the stone produces for a given steel and not so much about how sharp can I get it.
