A very sweet Narutaki medium soft kiita stone, fine enough as a final finishing stone for razors, this stone
would make an excellent insertion into a "natural" progression leading up to the final finisher. The light buff
color has a faint hint of rouge, it is a fast cutter with excellent feedback. I have shaved off of this stone, taking
the razor off a 5k Suehiro directly to this stone and with the minimum of effort took the razor to HHT-3 level and
shave ready in just a few minutes. All of my stones come with a money back guarantee, this can be shipped in
a Small Flat Rate Priority Box.
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 shipping.
This stone and the other kamisori toishi on my site are from a world class private collection of over 400 pieces
assembled in Japan over the past years in the area around Toyama by a collector of shaving implements. I
was lucky enough to purchase total collection over the last 2 years. Many of the hones were actually used by
barbers, some dating to the 1920s or earlier, while others were simply prepared by the miners as razor hones
as evidenced by the size and fine quality of the stones grit composition.
