    Another unknown mine Japanese natural.


    Coloration can be an indicator to mine location.


    This one has a full rind around the edge. Held in hand it's shape feels like a piece of bone.


    A very fine, fast stone which is easy and forgiving to use. Enjoy!

    Refreshed my 7/8 Gauthier French faux frameback that's been rescaled in Turkish walnut burl by Alfredo Gil, for the Sunday morning shave. The stone is a pure, old rock 'chocolate' kiita, golden brown with grey-blue 'rivers' and not a line, wire, or defect in it, fitted into a hand-made base. It makes some of the smoothest edges I've encountered.

    Cheers, Steve

    Finished up a Hayashi Diamond rebuild this weekend and thought it appropriate to try to finish it on some Japanese stones.
    A yamashiro base stone and a hanayama, and mejiro slurry stone respectively.

    Used the hanayama from a thick slurry to clear, then the same with the mejiro, although the latter is much harder to make a slurry with.
    Ended up with a lovely toothed edge that just nips the hairs as they stand there.
    Off the strop, tomorrow will be the test shave to make sure it's where I like it.
    Still quite a novice with naturals so I'm not even sure I used these slurry stones in the correct order.. Lol.

    So. If you might figure out the right order, where would an Okudo Tomo fit in?

    From the very little I have gathered on these natural slurry stones, the tomo would probably impart an even tighter striation pattern than this mejiro did.
    The hanayama is like a coti, grit wise, the mejiro, closer to around 10k, and the tomo even finer,, at least that's what I think. Really need to run more tests with a surface scope on the finished edge from each.
    Fortunately I bought one for just such tests, just haven't set it up yet, hehe. A cheapo that plugs into the usb port on the computer. I need to make a better stand for it though as its to hard to adjust and keep perfectly still with the supplied set screws..

    I understand it to be quite fine. I suspect I have been wasting it here and there, although it has gently improved anything I have rubbed it upon!

    I have not tried it on the Escher yet, however.

    It was a gift from a seller I way overpaid for some NOS vintage Japanese strops.


    I might just toss it in the box! Let me use it on the Escher first, though!

    Oh yes,, the magic and mystery in these hard to spell words for these Japanese stones, totally need an interpreter.
    I use my coti slurry stone a fair bit on my Escher, seems to give it a bit more bite before finishing..
    I'd be delighted to test out the tomo..

    Well, that would depend on the stone. Is it Suita ? Is it Asagi ? How fine/coarse is it ?

    Calling something an Okudo Tomo is like saying , A "Texas rock". It doesn' tell much about the rock other than where it came from.

    Okudo suita are quite desirable for tools. The only Okudo Asagi I used was overly aggressive to be a finisher but then again another may be just fine.

    With an unknown you can only experiment.
    It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that ain't so..
