Honyama Suita #155
This medium hard gray suita kamisori toishi is easy to use and is fast. Although I was
able to shave off of this stone I am deeming that this is a medium nakado kamisori toishi
and not an actual finish stone. It is thin and needs to be on a wooden base at some
point, There are some ancient inclusions that are filled with an alternate water soluble
material, none of which I could either feel when honing or with a fingernail, or provided
some material that harmed my blade. The moderate price reflects more of the size than
the grit quality of the stone.
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.
