Soft Aiiwatani Kiita brick and KU Kato, old picture. Super fast stone that leaves an insanely good edge and is a rather easy polisher.

Did you know I carry natural Japanese water stones for straight razor honing? This here is the Oozuku 40 Betsujo, it’ll keep those shaves extremely close!! $278

Ueno, the goma queen. Formal ‘Strata Stone Session’ coming soon. #jnats #tennentoishi #nofilterneeded

Today was a productive one. I was able to mount my lacquered Aizu to a solid surface, lacquer the wood, and add a nonslip coating to the bottom of the stone. I used an old cuttingboard that was in the burn wood pile, I cut the board at approximately 45 degree angles to the grain so the entire exposed surface would look like end grain. This was epoxied to the stone, then sealed with many coats of lacquer. Finally I added a coat of liquid tape to the bottom for a nonstick surface. .

Nakayama sunashi suita. Breakfast today is hardened Aogami 2 honyaki steel, yum!

A little Maruoyama tomae gem. I got this one specifically at a friend’s request, he dubbed it his “Hinoura stone” 😂. Not a super big stone but very clean, super fast (can even be ever so slightly too aggressive at times), and gives a very nice contrast. Pics at a couple different angles.

As promised the Ohira suita from yesterday’s post @fafnir88. I think @japanese_knives_collection will have a silly grin on his face when he uses this one for the first time.

Tested some stones for a friend yesterday. This is the test finish of a flawless (as a polisher) Ohira renge suita on Watanabe gyuto.

Same finish as the previous post.

Wakasa suita, super fine and smooth. The finish on the kanna is pretty awesome.

Sweet brick of #ohira #uchigumori without any hard lines or impurities. Karasu and namazu to boot. The contrast is great and finish scratchless.

Nakayama Sunashi suita finish on the Kato Damascus #wip. Next up ao renge suita and hard Narutaki, then finger stones.

Continuation on the Kato dammy WIP. Now off Aizu and getting ready for a soft finisher next. #wip #diy @japaneseknives_stones

WIP refinishing a Kato damascus fully on stones. This is off a red aoto (coarse akapin).

Ozuku lvl 5+++ (Namito strata) for ura bur removal of yanagiba.

A package came the other day!! A little internet grab from #japan A #beautiful #naturalstone from the #hatahoshi mine. Lvl 5++. (Or so they say). But you can barely make out the #stamp right below the scales of the #straightrazor #jnats #jnatsofinstagram #

Ooof! Nakayama sunashi suita! This Kato has a really finicky cladding but this stone can put a seriously cool polish on it. And the speed! This stone is also an oddity, feels smooth and somewhat soft but in reality it’s rather hard and very very fine.

Watanabe gyuto choil 👀.
