#3 Kiita Bench stone

This mid-size kiita stone came from the air raid shelter hoard. It is medium
hard and will absorb water but it will not self slurry. Full of nashiji patterns
in wide bands like a tree ring pattern there is just a little kawa skin on one side.

Like the the other kiita from this group It has hand sawn sides and ends and an
interesting chiseled back with glancing chisel or chisel head hammer blows.
It is a very fast cutting stone that would be perfect for chisels, knives or razors.
With this stone and all of the other kiita I have honed a Henckels razor 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.
