Japanese Chosera Waterstones by Naniwa at Tools for Working Wood

But the best natural waterstones come from age-old quarries that are largely exhausted. Naniwa has always strived for their artificial waterstones to have a very natural feel, and their Chosera stones are their top-of-the line stones. These are the best, fastest cutting waterstones we have ever seen. However what really attracted us to the stones is the feel of the stone on the steel as you sharpen.

You get a firm, consistent feel, with no slipping, glazing, skidding, and a good sense of feedback on how the stone is working. At our request, the factory is packaging these stones without bases to that they will fit in any existing sharpening jig you use, and so that you can easily use the both sides and the edge of the stone. The Chosera stones come in six grits: 400,1000,2000, 3000,5000, and 10K. . 8 1/4" x 2 3/4" (210 mm x 70 mm) and 1" (25 mm) thick.

The withdrawal may be carried out peacefully or violently. Political conflicts that lead to secession are usually based on economic, cultural, or religious differences. In United States history the question of secession arose several times before the Civil War, but the term generally refers to the withdrawal of the Southern states from the Union in 1860–61.

Secession has also been an issue in other countries. Panama in 1903 seceded from Colombia partly because of Colombian opposition to plans by the United States to construct the Panama Canal.

Ecological Bricks - The Temas Blog

In a project funded in part by Germany’s technical cooperation agency, GTZ, CEVE developed a brick made of used food (primarily candy) wrappers and plastic (primarily PET) soda and water bottles. For more information (in Spanish) on the CEVE project, click this link. – Keith R.
