Notes: Sometimes referred to as a Monzento/do, these are becoming really difficult to find. They are typically mud masters, making them ideal for wide bevel work. This one in particular is slightly harder than some we've handled, which means a slower wear rate, but with essentially the same hazy results. Super wide, this will be awesome on larger blades.
