Imanishi Omura 180x WaterStone (Not Naniwa)

Our Omura 180x is a fast cutting coarse stone that is best used on wide bevels like found on yanagibas, usubas, etc. This is one of my use in case of emergency stones that stays in my bucket at the ready. Great for working out low or uneven sections on wide bevels. Yes it wears fast but cuts fast too - keep it flat while working and you'll do OK with even the heaviest grinding.
Requires at least 30 min. soak time in water before use, however, it will work a lot better if left soaking for many hours prior to use. Also, this stone is best used after being lapped a couple of times to remove the harder outer layer of the stone. Some downward pressure (while sharpening) is advised to help bring the water to the surface for proper lubrication. For heavy metal removal do not flush the stone's surface clean during use, allow for a slurry to build to aid in cutting performance.
Size - (L) 8 1/2" x (W) 3 1/4" x (H) 2"
