Imanishi #400 Latte - Stone Review with Yoshihiro VG10.

Initial out of the box impressions are that this stone is well constructed. It has a hearty heft to it leading me to assume that it has a decent abrasive density and from what I have gathered, spec. sheets indicate that this stone is a ceramic abrasive. The Latte definitely benefits from a long 20+ minute soak before starting.

NOTE: (Please bear in mind that these particular sharpening videos are NOT Demonstration or How-To videos. These Latte #400 videos are of me working a kit for a client. Normally everything would be different as far as choice of coarse stone, stone progression, and total time spent working toward the sharpening requirements for these pieces. The tasks performed here are above what I feel would be the "normal" spectrum of work by ANY #400 stone and what we captured here is the Latte #400 being pushed to its boundaries.)

Sharpening a Nigara White #2 gyuto on a Takashima Hon Suita koppa(small stone) Lv. 4 hardness. This stone is definitely on the harder side and is slow to release particulate. Raising some mud using a fine nagura stone compliments the sharpening experience very well. This stone is not an exceptionally fast cutter given its fineness but it does polish hagane rather quickly and creates an incredibly sharp cutting edge, therefore I feel conditioning the stone beforehand was unnecessary since the purpose of this session was edge refinement and not aesthetic polishing. This was not so much a full sharpening session, rather a removal of the primary burr and ensuring a complete apex across the entire edge from heel to tip. An amazing knife deserves an equally amazing edge.

Apologies for the poor audio. There is an imbalance in the stone that the microphone picked up. There was no wobble during the session, so I went on ahead with the recording. Thanks for watching!
