#77 Shobudani iro mono tomae

A thick and easily held stone  from the Air Raid Shelter hoard that
can be used for straight razors or for fine knives. Not a pure
kiita but instead a iro mono with yellow tendencies, in any event
it is a luxury stone in every sense of the word

The kawa natural skin on the back, two sides and one
end suggest that it came from a nook of the tomae shelf
where the kiita stones are found.


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.
