Nakayama rare suita  #720

Nakayama suita with a kan pattern of darker minerals and a sparsely
sprinkled black goma sesame pin point size spots. The darker kan and
the goma pattern around this stone are not toxic and will not harm a
blade in any way, they add charm but do not aid is honing either. Nakayama
suita stones are rare and I just stumbled into a hoard of these koppa
sizes. I have shaved off this as a hand held stone and it created while
following a 1,000 grit King and excellent and highly refined edge that
shaved not only smooth but comfortable.

The skin on the back of this stone just screams Nakayama is one of
the best examples of Nakayama kawa that I have seen in many years.

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. This stone will be
shipped with a tested tomonagura slurry stone.
