Notes: We have fallen in love with these somewhat lesser known Umajiyama stones. They are incredibly easy to use and relatively affordable, and can be found in smaller sizes like this type 60. They have nice, grippy feedback at first, and then start to self slurry quickly, leading to smoother, silky feedback. They are surprisingly fast and make nice hazy to frosty kasumi. You could finish off of that level of Kasumi, or use it as a mid to end stone before your pre or final polishing stone for something brighter. The slurry can be reused for powder work, as well. We recommend these for beginners and advanced users.

Please Note: Given the natural aspect of these stones, all subjective qualities are our estimates and may vary slightly from your exact expectations and assessment. The images shown and characteristics described may be from a previous example. If purchased, yours may differ slightly in appearance and qualities. Dimensions, weight, and stamps may be different from listed if it has been tested.
