Ozaki Suita #507
This hard blue/gray suita tennen toishi is perfect and tested to be a true kamisori toishi.
Using TheAxMethod I was able get a close and comfortable shave with little effort using
a vintage Torey straight razor. This stone shows the typical diagonal streaks that are
made up of blues set in a gray background. The su ancient gas voids are evenly
scattered on the stone and are of a very fine and small nature. The stone is as seen
from the sides and ends looks very homogeneous and solid with no inclusions and will
provide years of service.
The Ozaki mine along with most of the other famous Kyoto mines was closed up for
good in the 1920s or before. This is old stock that was collected from a rural town in
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.
