Some of our stones are hard (H=More Than5+),but It makes strong slurry and ultra cutting effect. Then the slurry catches the plane blade and hung up the stone within 1 minute + on right hand action!! Can you believe that?? Have you ever seen that in harder stones? It's not easy softer water draining stones. Movie's stone is belong to Nakayama Kiita KAN also harder Akapin KAN. It's collected before www2 but mainly 1,300-1,900 era. And most of persons don't know this kind of stones. Surely it's far greater than Nasiji pattern.
This is 1500+yrs historic Ancient Iyo-mate performance.
§In harder stones,Iyo Nagura is the best§
It makes rich slurry, revivify the cutting effect to remove plugging up.
Higonokami is able to re-sharpen. Refer to disposal cutter knife sharpening video. It's similar work. Iyo is suitable for Higo sharpening well. **Drop some water and make enough slurry before sharpening.
Mainly ,they are temporarily usage. Once ,they are known as the teaching materials of the primary school children. People learn sharpening skill and the handling of the knife. However,laminated blade editions are belong to high class blades!!
It's hardest Honyama Yamashiro mate Ohzuku Asagi. No Nagura pasted!!
With Iyo Nagura slurry! The first, Cutting speed is felt so rich. And the tenacity of slurry is also very rich. This is one of famous feature of Iyo. Next, the grit of slurry are shrunken as long as sharpened!! In the same time, cutting speed progressively decelerated. Blackish iron is suspend in the slurry very well!!!
At last, appeared funny mist and haze. Even if Iyo was applied, the grit rose up!! What a amazing!! Much skill is necessary to rise up the grit of slurry. But, everyone can enjoy the help of slurry!!! Don't mind.
Why artifact stones surrender Japanese natural whetstones still now?
