Shobudani iromono tomae #341
Totally Unique Shobudani toishi with red ink drop spots on a pale yellow gray ground. A
fantastic razor hone that is as fine and fast as it is beautiful. At 35mm thick it make an
excellent hand held stone, the grit feels to the touch almost like glass but the fine enough
to hone even the hardest Swedish or Japanese razors. The hardness scale for this hone
is 4++ so it will self slurry to some degree, with just clear water lots of steel shows up in
the water. Lots of color in this stone and it looks like it might turn out to be a kiita (after
years and years of use).
The toishi has been lapped perfectly flat, the sides dressed and the corners and edges
beveled unless otherwise noted. All of my stones come with a money back guarantee
minus the shipping.
