Narutaki Suita #240
This hard and light colored suita tennen toishi has a very fine su pattern of ancient gas
voids on the top/hada and a few spots of renge on the back. It is a very fast cutting stone
and it will hone up a razor to shave ready with little effort. I do most of my honing with a
slurry but with some skill this stone can be used with just clear water. This size and
shape stone is easily used as a hand held hone but it could be mounted on a wooden
The topside end of the stone that has some yaki burnt umber coloring is not as flawless
and has some rough spots when compared to the lighter colored end. It is hard to tell if
these rough spots will eventually lap off with use.
The toishi has been lapped perfectly flat, the sides dressed and the corners and edges
beveled unless otherwise noted and all of my stones come with a money back guarantee
minus the shipping.
