Japanese Natural Whetstone *Rare* Shohonyama Narutaki Yamakyo Senmai 1707g from Kyoto


This is a Narutaki Senmai that used to be sold at a stone shop Yamakyo / Kyoto. Senmai is the layer above Tomae and is rarely distributed in Japan today.
It is known up to now that it was mined in the Senmai Layer in the Narutaki area, Honkuchinari in eastern Kyoto, but the exact name of the quarry is unknown. It was shown to a knowledgeable vendor, who said it was probably Ozaki.
Dense, solid and slightly hard stone, but a good slurry comes out immediately and the blade sharpens up quickly.

Please note that these are not for beginner sharpeners since they're harder to use. These are natural stones meaning that every single one of them are different so my measured size are not accurate. This is a life time investment for people who lives sharpening their knives, razors and tools, do not hesitate to ask me your questions.
