Re: Ozuku coffe table

Looks like perhaps Ozuku karasu. Nice!

I would use something coarser than newsprint for an intermediate step. Perhaps a Yaginoshima Asagi. But finer than a ceramic mug.

Perfect stone for a large Yanagi :)

Re: Chamfering Edges on Shapton Glass?

You'll get more stone edge grabbing on natural stones with their irregular borders.

Re: Stropping question

Agree. I use lexol on strops combined with microcloth to remove 'strop debris'.

Re: Forcing a patina on Anryu Hammered nakiri

The patina from onions produced by the onion's acid and the relief from ferric chloride will produce relatively similar effects. Even surgical stainless surgical instruments made from 440 c stainless will show rust and or patina albeit at a slower rate.

Re: How to remove scratches from a new Makoto Kurosaki

I'm curious. Are scratches like these merely a cosmetic issue or do they affect performance and durability? I think they do. I often use these for cosmetic work including removing patinas and rust but for rough scratches and preparing kasumi finishes, I go for diamond bars. For real deep scratches ...

Re: How to remove scratches from a new Makoto Kurosaki

"Change wheel for each compound - right"
Yes. Similar to other sharpening stones. In this case you can go WAY past 2k grit to 160k grit if you wish. I often find 2 micron bars (8k) more than adequate

Re: How to remove scratches from a new Makoto Kurosaki

The diamond bars come in grits from 80 microns to tenth microns. I do have 200 and 300 microns but rarely use these, so yes you need to use a sequence of grits. Sometimes I use other compounds in a sequence with the diamond bars depending on the scratch depth. (Separate topic)

No. Too much bleeding to use a camera. However if you want to volunteer....

Re: How to remove scratches from a new Makoto Kurosaki


This example uses diamond bars on a variable speed buffer. Very controlled system for precise scratch removal.

Re: which stones to fix a chip

I would like to see what we are talking about but, if it's a big problem Ken sells a Nubatama Bamboo Black 180 thats a very fast cutter and stays wet and forms a good mud. Ken, you can correct me if that stone you sold me is not Bamboo Black. That's the one! (180). I now have a 220 and a 46 and 80 ...

Re: which stones to fix a chip

You might want to try linking another picture. If the chip is large, a coarser stone would be a better stone to start with.You may need several stones for a proper edge.
