Nakayama iro-mono tomae #606
Rare and unique Nakayama colored stone iro-mono toishi. This razor
hone is an excellent cutting stone, fast and smooth and will leave a razor
shave ready with little effort. The narrow shape will suit X stroke honing
strokes but can also be used for traditional straight on strokes. There
are 2 areas of kawa skin on the corners and on the back. The pastel
coloration on the front ranges through the yellows, browns, faint green
Expensive for this size but very rare in any size, I have shave tested
from this stone and found it to provide an excellent edge.
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.
