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

 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. 

Two tomo nagura matching in fineness will be included.
