    Default New stone -Wakasa

    Recently Max from Japanese Natural Stones
    while talking to me mentioned that he is getting some new razor finishing stones from Wakasa.
    He knows I like to test different stones from varios mines so as soon as he had the stones and tested them he let me know that there is a few available and I as a diligent sucker for J-nats I jumped right in.

    After I played with my Wakasa for about 20 razors I confirmed what Max told me, very fine and fast cutting stone. A big plus about this stone is that it is not super hard and that means it is easier to use which makes it perfect beginner stone.
    I tested on many carbons as well as a few stainless blades and the results were very consistent -a nice smooth edge.

    I've never tried Wakasa. Looks unusual, very plain color.

    it is very uniform no clouding at all, this one has lighter spot in the middle but the camera couldnot catch it.
    Very nice stone IMHO.
