Show us your Japanese Natural Whetstones

This stone is slower than molasses in January, but it is absolutely amazing to hone on...the slurry breaks down for days and just keeps polishing. The tomo that came with it was nearly as long as my femur. I cut three pieces the size of my palm and I have a few stones left over. Nakayama Maruichi Kamisori; pure finisher. 135x83x35. One pic with stamps and one without.

I like the stamp that says its "for razors"
 
The first Yuge stone that I have ever come across. I've found very little information on them other than a few mentions on the Tomo Nagura site. This one is pretty hard, and came up with effortless hht both root in and out. Has anyone else had experience with these ?
