    Default pre-lapped Nakayama

    新年明けましておめでとうございます,

    I thought I'd share this for posterity before I lap it's face off. It's 5.5 x 1 x 3 inches. I've never seen a Japanese waterstone with a lot of English writing before...

    Oh, please. This is coming from a guy with a Tamahagane western straight by Iwasaki.

    Vendor's description: "Nakayama Maruka Natural Whetstone 778.8g (1lb. 11.6oz.) 140mmX83mmX25mm #6000 to #10000 on a Narutaki paper sticker and Maruka and Honyama stamps on the whetstone for finishing razor blade or small blade"

    The price was good. My DMT D8C is getting ready...

    Did you get that from Aframestokyo?
    he has stocked a bunch of razor sized Nakayamas lately.
    Please do let us know how the stone is.

    I did indeed buy the stone from Aframestokyo. He recently received a slew of waterstones, Iwasaki western (Tamahagane) and Japanese style razors. He had one particularly beautiful stone that was white with cherry-colored marks all over the surface.
