 NOS Japanese Natural Finishing Whetstone Nakayama Mizu Asagi Maruka Yamazen from Hatanaka 

 A rare NOS Authentic Nakayama Maruka in large size that can last for generations even with regular use. 
 These are the most prized natural stones in Japan and the finest selection from the Nakayama mine. They were selected and stamped personally by Kato-san, the owner of the mine.
On an old Hatanaka pamphlet they were compared with diamonds. 

 It is a very hard stone with the highest fineness level that Japanese natural stones can reach.  I recommend it to be used as a final finisher at the end of the honing progression or to refresh the edge of the razor every time the shave is less comfortable and starts to pull the hair. 

 To refresh the razor, in the first step use a more rough slurry made with Koma or raised with diamond plate in order to remove the steel. After that use the superfine slurry made with tomo-nagura for the final polishing. 

I will include a Maruka Nakayama Mizu Asagi tomo nagura with Hardness 5+ / Fineness 5++. (I do not have a 5+++ tomo) 

 I’ve partially lapped the surface (see the light color on the right side) and tested the stone several times. Since it is an old stone that was lapped last time decades ago, it has patina on the surface and the pure, clean Mizu Asagi is under. I left it as it is, partially lapped to preserve the stamps but before using it, needs to be lapped properly. 

The kawa is beautiful, has a thickness of 1-2mm and is perfectly covering the entire back of the stone. 

Sealed with cashew.
