A small very pure example of an Okudo uchigumori suita pale gray kamisori toishi. This is a narrow but
excellent and pure razor hone that is not so over the top hard this stone will very quickly cut and set your bevels
with a slurry and then when thinned to clear water it will polish your edges to a chrome sheen that will be very
sharp but yet comfortable. I shave test all my stones and this one passed with flying colors.
Uchigumori is from the shallow Tenjyou strata so the stones, this one has small flecks of red renge.
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.
