    Yes that's the 7x2" king.

    Great pics, love them slurry shots. Here are four Russian straights to be honed.



    Natural bevel set and mid-range progression.


    Awesome shavers that should not be over looked. Finished a couple on the fun Fox hone w/oil. Good times, good times.

    No pictures today, but I thought I should post something.

    Grabbed my ol', seen better days, "Red Diamond" 5/8" square point and my well ignored Coticule and touched'er up using the dilutcot method and took the blade through it's paces. I gave it 50 round trips on my English Bridle strop to finish. Now I remember why I was using this hone back in the day, even after my 16K glass Shapton. No weepers in the test shave, something that does happen when I use a Jnat progression or diamond paste. Not quite as piquant/smooth as Bekk does on his $10 Coticule find (don't you just hate it when a student surpasses the teacher in no time flat? ), but more than good enough to make me sit up and think..... "Maybe I *shouldn't* sell this hone after all".....<sigh>.

    While I've always been gung ho on man made hones... I seem to be drifting towards naturals......

    Regards

    This is an Amakusa bench stone I acquired from So Yamashita some years back. It is a sword stone he hand picked and said it could be used for razors, he was right. Many grades exist some not so good that can cause chipping apparently. I have never experienced any chipping with this particular stone.



    There are large pock holes in the surface. These are no concern while honing provided the stone is lapped flat. Stone works best completely loaded with slurry. The pock holes actually fill up with this mud.




    Bonus pic! Some feel the Amakusa would be better used like this. he,he. Like all naturals, many variations can exist.
