    I cut it in myself with a hacksaw. I won't do it again, and I may lap the ones you see there out.

    It's about 175 x 40 or so - I don't have it out right now so I have to guess the size. The rubber was cut off the stone with a hacksaw.

    Whats the big black one? Yellow lake?


    And I agree about your dislike of the grid pattern, Gamma. I find that thuri's have the unusual ability to be able to scratch themselves. I've got a few with same piece rubbing stones and if I get impatient and angle the rubber for a bit faster slurry it's not uncommon to scratch the stone. I actually prefer to lap both my stone AND the slurry stone for my Thuri's.

    There really is no need for the cuts in my opinion, and those little edges have a tendency to crumble. The resulting little bits floating around in the slurry is a hazard. Same for Nagura too.

    Yeah I have noticed that too, with my hard to slurry stones it's better to leave them flat and score them with a diamond plate.

    Nice setup.

    I was wondering who got that Mikawa Botan.
    And that Koppa looks amazing.

    Excellent Botan, fits nicely under the Iyo. Top left corner is the coticule I got from my uncle.

    Sheesh. Y/G 6x2" escher is selling for almost $750 on eBay right now with 2 days to go.


    ...

    I don't even use my 6x2" Y/G thuri. The price people will pay for a label.

    that is a gorgeous stone.....
    a nice walk in the woods helps me relax and relieves tension....

    the fact i'm dragging a shovel and a body should be irrelevant...

    Brian, that's a stunning stone, top and bottom. That skin really pops... maybe Alex can chime in with a guess about it's origin?

    Had a chance to put some of the rest of the Nagura together for a group portrait today.

    On the left - two smaller Tenjou. Middle row, f-b - Mejiro, Botan, Tenjou. Right side, Mejiro.

    I can see why you'd need the two backup Tenjou. That one is a bit on the small side.

    Those two just happend to be out when I was shooting the photo.
    I used the one in the back to hone up a Dorko today. Im still figuring those two out..

    The backup is enroute.

    Just because they are stamped tenjyou, Mejiro etc.doesn't mean they are remotely similar, they are all very different. I've cut big Nagura into smaller pieces and these pieces which were originally inches apart can be markedly different, especially striped ones. I was recently generous gifted to piece of Iyo, basically all white that is very consistent despite being cut into numerous pieces, again they are all different.
