|OZAKI KAMISORI TOISHI
VINTAGE OZAKI KAMISORI TOISHI.
A soft pastel colored Asagi stone with washes of yellow to green and a faint blue/gray ground.
This is stone is ultra fine and is best worked with a slurry made up of the finest nagura,
tomonagura or from a diamond plate. Ozaki is a closed mine and they produced razor and
finishing hones that are well known. The typical Ozaki matte finish to the kawa skin is present on
the back and ends and the faint cloudy pattern of the top is similar to Nakayama in looks. The
circular kan or ring pattern is not toxic and will not affect the sharpening qualities in any way.
Moderately priced because of the thinness of the stone at 14mm but the width and length makes
it perform as a full size stone.
