Nakayama Kiita tomae #10
One of my finest stones to offer, this true Nakayama Kiita has everything to offer except for
the missing corners and the under cut edges. An amazing razor hone, it can be used for
the finest edged tools, but as a kamisori toishi razor hone it will take a razor very quickly
with the fewest number of strokes to shave ready. As you can see in the video, and I
shave tested that blade and it was an elegant barber type shave, this stone is easy and
fast to use.
The dull egg yellow of these harder stones is very desirable, there was originally a ink
stamp that read Jun Shin Honyama, this stone came out of a closed up store that closed
in the 1970s.
The toishi has been lapped perfectly flat, the sides dressed and the corners and edges
are beveled extra wide to deter nicking or chipping. There are inclusions as you can see
but they are all solid and are not toxic to any steel. I suggest that the stones sides and
back be sealed with lacquer.
All of my stones come with a money back guarantee minus the shipping.
