    I just received my Ozoku Asagi (Koppa) from chef knives to go. I will be able to cut the broken section off and have a full 5"x2-1/2" stone and have a slurry stone to boot. [​IMG]

    I'm going to get in trouble when I go down the rabbit hole of honing. Especially wth Japanese stones since I can ask my father in law to find some for me haha

    That's where I'm going to get in trouble. I'm going to start with my dream razor. An Iwasaki Kamisori. Then I will have fallen in the rabbit hole and boarded up the exit

    That should be a good stone to mess with all around

    Try it all with the slurries there are sooooooooo many tricks to getting the most out of your particular J-nat

    I would suggest

    From a Shave Ready edge (example off a Synthetic 8k) that you know well

    Try it just wet
    Try it with a Diamond raised slurry misty to heavy
    Try it with the Piece of the stone making the slurry

    Once you have messed with that all that then branch out into the real fun LOL
