Product Description for #600 Grit Large Amakusa Red Natural Stone

Price: $27.95

Item weight: 80.00 oz.
Size: 220x70x60mm/8.6"x2 3/4"x2 1/3"
Description: This large Natural Japanese waterstone comes from Kyushu Island, Japan. It includes a mix of grits ranging from 500 - 700 grit on the Japanese scale. It is well suited for sharpening a fully dulled knife -- even those with chips and nicks. It removes metal fairly quickly without leaving an overly deep scratch pattern. I have been using one in my sharpening service and have been very happy with its performance. This stone should be followed by a medium grit stone such as the Amakusa White Natural Stone (#1000 Grit).
Unlike comparable manmade stones, the natural Amakusa waterstone leaves a shallower scratch which seems a bit easier to polish out on finer stones. Spending a little extra time on the Amakusa reduces time required on finer stones.
Dimensions are approx 8.6" long X 2 3/4" wide X 2 1/3" tall. This is a naturally occurring stone and no two are exactly the same size.
We recommend using a stone holder to keep the stone from slipping while sharpening and to raise the stone above the table's surface.
