First mined in Omura, Nagasaki, and then certain Wakayama veins, traditional Omura whetstones are made of all-natural materials with a unique softness. Although the mines of their origin are now closed, the popularity of the Omura whetstone has bred an artificial version offering the same gentle grinding quality and luxurious feel.
