Nakayama iro tomae #132
A singular stone in that it is thicker than it is wide giving it a high but narrow profile. The
colors of this stone range from red-rouge, browns and yellows to an almost white light
gray area. Looking at the back of the stone it appears that the color scheme and grit
character will remain true throughout the stone. I have hone a razor off this stone using X
strokes I came away with a very sharp shave ready edge that give a close shave. The
sides are lacquered with real urushi. A very solid and dense stone.
The toishi has been lapped perfectly flat and the edges beveled.
