I wanted to post some photos of the stones that I’ll have at the Fire & Brimstone Hammer-In next month. There’ll be a lot more Iyoto slurry stones than are pictured here, largely because I have to cut down some of the material into usable pieces. There may actually end up being some Iyoto razor hones out of some of this material, but that’ll be determined once I get to cutting and grinding.
Yes, I’ve tried them out. The Uchigumori are superb. I find that I really like how the Aoto polishes. It’s softer than it looks and leaves a beautiful finish on steel.
