Sakura Stone 1000 Grit

This stone is brought to you by Konosuke-Sakai.  We love that it comes with a matching nagura, so that you don't have to wonder about any cross contamination of other stones.

We like the performance of this stone a lot.  Gives a great bite and finish on German steel.  An excellent stone for keeping the difference of soft and hard steel on single bevel before going on to an aoto or pre polishing stones.

The wear is a slow medium / hard stone.

Packaged in an elegant black box with sakura petals draped over the corner. (Great for gifting).

Two thumbs up!
