Narutaki mine iro tomae #804
Large dense and colorful tomae, a life times worth of sharpening media. This tomae has
on the top surface flashes colors that range from blue, purple, red and pink to green and
yellows that all come alive when wet. This top bands layer is about 8-10mm thick, then
comes a 16mm layer of intense eggplant aubergine and at the base to what looks like
another multi colored layer similar to as seen on the top.
The Narutaki mine provided some really thick stones in the early 20th century, the mine
was within 1/2 mile from the Nakayama site just up the valley so some features are like
the cloudy or foggy surface patterns shared by both mines.
All of my stones come with a tested tomonagura slurry stone.
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 return shipping.
