Notes: A lovely stone! While it is on the harder side on paper, I actually couldn't get the stone to scratch my test Kiridashi. That, aned given its speed, this stone is actually quite easy to use and will produce a dark slurry within seconds. For the price, it is a lovey choice for both beginners and intermediate users.
