#70 Nakayama Kiita Koppa
The largest kiita koppa that I have to offer from the air shelter hoard, this
stone is not only giant in size but huge in performance. I was easily able
to hone a vintage Henckels straight razor from Shapton Pro 2,000 grit
to shave ready in about 4 minutes including stropping on linen and then
A very muscular stone I have found that it will cut most steels including
blue paper steel. The yellow ki color on the back is more even on the back of
the stone than the front, and also the inclusions you see on the front continue
around and to the back. Someone could conceivably lap the back of this stone
to make it two sided.
There are classroom examples of Nakayama kawa on all sides in the usual
tones of umber, burnt umber, ochre and vast displays the crystallized black
component including the thick textural form as seen in the photos.
The stone (toishi) has been lapped flat and the corners and
edges beveled unless otherwise noted. All of my stones come with a tested
and appropriately sized tomonaguara slurry stone, and a money back
guarantee minus the return shipping.
