#654 Okudo double sided gray tomae
Both sides of this stone have been lapped and both are equally
fine and perfect for razors. The graphic side has what looks like a
diagonal pattern in darker material that can be felt with a fingernail
in certain spots. It does affect the honing qualities and it does
downgrade this stone. This inclusion as it leaves the top side it
runs along the side of the stone and appears on the back side
nearer the opposite corner where is then runs back to the other
end of the stone along the side. I am going to call this an
an As Is Stone, and the price reflects this as does the the
I have hone a vintage Gold Dollar razor on this stone, it is super
fine and smooth, not terribly fast but it did take a razor from bevel
set to shave read easily.
The stone (toishi) has been lapped flat and the
corners and edges beveled unless otherwise noted. All of my
stones come with a tested and appropriately sized tomonaguara
slurry stone, and a money back guarantee minus the return shipping.
