Hideriyama is a n natural stone mine in Kyoto that has stopped mining a while ago. The characteristic of stones from this mine is relatively soft compare to Nakayama, Ozuku or Ohira. It is easy to use and builds slurry quite fast. It is good stone for Kasumi as well as many knife sharpeners use for finishing kobas.
We obtain this stone from Shosui Takeda who has huge collection of natural sharpening stones. We have asked Takeda-san to choose stones that are great to sharpen his knvies.
