Pre-owned by Jiro Nakagawa and signed in bottom!
This stone was picked by Jiro himself in the Morihei store in Tokyo several years ago.
After trying many stones, he picked this one due to it strong feedback on Hagane.
We tried the stone and we must say, we are amazed. The feedback is so strong, yet the stone is fine. leaves a super sharp edge. Perfect for your hard carbon knives.
Works best with nagura
