    Made these recent rock purchases I note these are more for knife work and possibly some razor roughing out if required
    first is Naniwa 150 grit New Omura 210x78x55mm thick (grey)
    Secondly a Naniwa 600 grit Akamonzen 210x75x70mm thick (red)
    Both are true blricks but should last a while I think
