#2 Nakayama Kiita Bench stone
This large kiita stone came from the air raid shelter hoard. A super dense
stone, very pure with perfect confirmation I have tested this stone with a
vintage Henckels straight razor and a Japanese kanna blade and found that
the stone has a hardness rating of 5++ so it will not self slurry but when
used with a diamond plate generated slurry the cutting powers are almost
off the charts.
Like the the other kiita from this group It has hand sawn
sides and ends that I have now lacquered and the sides and ends.
The back displays a full kawa mineral skin A hard kiita but with very fast
cutting powers it will hone a chisel or plane blade to razor sharp. With this
stone and all of the other kiita I have honed the Henckels to a shave ready
state, taking but a few minutes and have then test shaved with it. The
results were barber like smooth and close.
The stone (toishi) has been lapped perfectly flat and the corners and edges
beveled and lacquered with Deft Semi-Gloss Brushing Lacquer. All of my stones
come with a tested and appropriately sized tomonaguara slurry stone, and a
money back guarantee minus the return shipping.
