Okudo mizu tomae #343
This deep blue mizu with partial green asagi tome level 5+ hardness stone is a classic
Okudo stone with a full kawa skin on the back. There is however, and this affects the
price, an under cut corner seen from the back at the upper left. The stone transitions from
the full 17mm thickness down to 7mm at the very corner edge. The stone is solid and
rings like a bell, it is not weak but thin out there.
Otherwise and excellent razor hone, I have used a diamond plate to generate a slurry and
the cutting speed is excellent, and followed with a tomonagura (included) the finish on
the razor was spot on and the shave super crisp and close.
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.
