2.4 kg. = 5.4 lbs.
The kanji at the upper right reads SEI HONZAN
AWASE TOISHI (original mountain finishing stone).
And in the middle SAIKOKYUHIN (very best quality)
This giant shiro Suita stone is a true grade 24
awasedo. Grade 24 toishi are and always have been
rare and expensive and this is a particularly fine
example. It came from a store in a small town in
Japan that closed in the 1970s containing stock
dating back to the 1930s. The awasedo has not
been used other than to test the quality at one edge
of the stone as you can see in the photos and it is
considered to be NEW/OLD STOCK.
