    Got a stone and I am curious about the kanji. I played with the filters and that's the best I could do to enhance it. Any idea what it says?

    Thank you in advance

    Hi, for now I guess:

    山城國眞正本山??
    Yamashiro kuni shinsei Honyama: Authentic Honyama from the Yamashiro area

    ??精撰 (read R>L) = Seisen = selected
    優 = Yū = excellent

    To be continued!

    (眞 = wrong, see edit a few posts further)

    Hard to tell but this stamp looks a lot like the Seki City stamp used in the knife industry there. The stone looks like Wakasa to me.

    For the moment I'm sticking to:
    (Read from left to right & above to below):

    山産山
    ? 正城
    証本國

    >

    山城國産正本山?証 = Yamashiro kuni-san Honyama - ? - shō:
    Authentic Yamashiro area product, Honyama, warranted

    大西精選 = Ōnishi Seisen = (careful) selected by Ōnishi

    優 (in circle) = Yū = excellent

    Apparently MICOR was a retailer/seller/producers (around 1950 - 60's) of
    straight razors, (stainless) kitchen knives & forks,... and ... stones

    By the way, apparently the listing of this stone stated that the seller bought it
    around 昭和40年 (=1965) and (if I translated correctly) he said to have bought
    it for the price of about half a year salary

    Yes I pulled the listing up and it translates it as half year salary
    Thanks again for all the time and work you put into it.
