Recommended Usage: Fast, bright Kasumi or polished Hagane, scratch removal from sub 6000 grit; final (pre) polisher; push cut tools; Uraoshi sharpening; microbevels.

Notes: Handpicked Hitohira stone. Super consistent specimen. Provides a very fast and easy bright Kasumi. A little harder than more expensive Uchigumori, so be mindful with pressure. Hard enough for push cut tools. The line can only be felt with the fingers when actively feeling for it and not when polishing wide bevels; it has no effect on the result. A really awesome addition to a stone library and those doing serious polishing.
