Used for cleaning a glazed surface or creating a slurry prior to honing on finer stones, thereby speeding up the process. These artificial Nagura stones are the equivalent of the 8,000 gold stone and therefore there will not be a problem with particle contamination when used on other grit stones. Size: 70 x 20 x 23mm

Japanese Nagura StoneCame very quickly and extremely well wrapped. However, although not used yet, the description does not say "Artificial" Nagura Stone, as is on the invoice. Looking forward to testing out the product and will then give a true star rating, but do urge Axminster to make it clear on their website, that it is an "Artificial" product that they are selling. 10/10 for speed of delivery and packaging though.
