    Default SOLD: Nakayama Maruka

    Up for sale a very nice and clean Nakayama Maruka Asagi for razors.
    The stone measures 205x55x33mm , it is mounted on a carved base and both the stone and the base are lacquered with cashew lacquer.
    The stone has that blue-green classic Asagi appearance. There are no lines or cracks on the surface, and the sides show very nice uniformity through out the thickness of the slab. The stone is extremely smooth and uniform and is a superb finisher. It makes very keen yet mellow edges provided a compatible tomonagura is used. The stone is very hard but not ultra hard and that makes it easy to use without any risk of scratching the bevels.

    I have included pictures of the stone as it is now, and also with the stamps when I got it including translations of the two quality stamps. The stamp that is not translated is the standard "Shohonzan" stamp. The Maruka stamp can be seen on the side of the stone in the second picture.

    PRICE= $400 shipped in US

    A top quality stone, not like the re-stamped average rocks sold all over the internet.

    I've always been tempted to jump into the J-Nat World,

    But,,,,,

    I have several nice finishers from other lands & I rarely use them. I only use a straight twice a week & my edges last a while between touch-ups.

    Also the learning curve for J-Nats does not really thrill me.

    IMHO Jnats are no rocket science. You use them like any other water stone. With or without slurry.
