    Here’s a nice kiita with an iro streak down the middle, pretty good razor finisher too. Stones of this quality on fitted bases are getting scarce.

    Steve, that base is like a nest for the cherished egg.

    Thanks Alex, I’ve also found that many stones on the fitted bases are better, they don’t have layer cracks and they didn’t go to the trouble of hand fitting a base unless the stone was good. Some ar better fitted than others, this one is very good.

    Some are fitted so perfectly that when I apply 3-4 layers of cashew I have trouble placing them back in. Have you guys seen this? Do you put the tight fitting stones back with the Dai dry or wet? Just curious.

    I don’t lacquer the ones on fitted bases. None of them have ‘features’ that sealing lacquer are really needed for, and as you know, the good bases are quite tightly fitted. I usually take mine out of the dai for use, then put them back in when dry. No real reason, but I never liked the idea of putting the dai away with water/slurry under the stone, though that’s exactly how they were used.

    Figured J-nats on a fitted bases were already scarce some time ago. Or, I have had no clue where to find one....

    With pleasure I looked at a lot of beautiful photos.
    I have nothing to boast of. I only have 2 Jnat. They are both nameless. About the green know that he is a very solid 5+. I work on it with the naguras. On clean a good finish. However, the edge is very aggressive, it is easy to cut yourself while shaving.
    The reddish stone is slightly softer (4,5-5). The seller said it was shouhonyama.The finish of the razor on a clean stone makes it very sharp, and shaving more comfortable without loss of sharpness. After both stones, the razor easily passes hht. Even cuts the hair in length. Minus have these of stones one: both work very slowly. When working on a clean stone with water from the metal does not remain black marks. Working properties are important to me, but if anyone knows what these stones are, tell me.

    If a jnat edge is aggressive you can usually fix that with heavier slurry. I have 2-3 stones that make very smooth edges, but if you’re not careful shaving, they like to give you a little ‘love bite’ just to tell you who’s the boss. But heavier slurry turns them into kittens.
