Shobudani figural tomae #812

Really handsome narrow tomae that is hard and super fine and very fast
cutting. With a slurry made by a worn out diamond plate it can remove 1k
scratches in just a minute and the scratch pattern left with a slurry is super dull
and fine. The back of this stone is irregularly shaped, one side with kawa skin
is beveled as an undercut from the top edge to the back of the stone so the
stone will become narrower as it is used. Also the tail end on the back side is  
thinner at 16mm with the head end about 20mm thick. This gives the stone a
slope from head to tail. Because the stone is so hard these shape issues have
little effect in the near term because wear happens so slowly.

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.
