Okudo asagi tomae #210
A classic Okudo asagi stone in olive green that creates a yellow slurry that is fast
cutting and super fine and easy to use. It is almost as simple as that. The back has
been lapped so that it sits flat on a bench or stone holder, both sides have been
sanded and display the same asagi color right through to the back. There are two
spots on the right edge but they are out of the way and will just be lapped through as
time goes by and at this stage are just cosmetic. There is one short solid inclusion at
the bottom that is filled with namazu and it looks similar to a Nakayama "straight
The ink stamps at the upper right edge read SHO HON ZAN AWASE TOISHI (true
original mountain finishing stone) and to the left center OKUDO (Okudo mine).
I have honed a razor using this stone and shaved afterwards and the shave was barber
like close and comfortable. This kamisori toishi will come with a tested tomonagura
slurry stone at no extra cost.
The stone (toishi) has been lapped perfectly flat and the corners and edges beveled
unless otherwise noted. All of my stones come with a money back guarantee minus
the return shipping.
