Amakusa stones are extracted from a mine in the Kumamoto prefecture, in Japan. Since It is a natural stone, it is not recommended to soak it before use. A light dampening is enough. Because of its stripes, the red Amakusa stone is also known as ''tora-to'', which means red tiger. Please note that the patterns will vary from one stone to another, because it comes directly from a quarry.
Hello. What is the size of the Amakusa stone?
The Amakusa stones all are :
20.5 cm long x 7cm wide and 5cm high.
Is this stone good to sharpen domestic chef knives?
Yes. Japanese stones work well for both western and japanese knives.
Amakusa is a natural stone and may be a bit more capricious than man made ones.
If it is your first stone, I'd recommend The 1000 grit one
