#1147 Nakayama iro tomae

A superior and beautiful piece of hard deep strata
Nakayama in a hand held size and shape. Lapped on both
the front and the back so that the stamps can be preserved.
I have honed a Henckels Fridour on this stone and to begin
with the feed back was spot on, ultra smooth but with a
bite that raised black swarf easily. Finished on clear water
with 4 strokes per side and the shave was absolutely perfect.

An iro or colored tomae strata stone, it has shades of yellow,
blue, and orange with a fine microscopic pattern or goma or
sesame seed black dots scattered here and there.

The stone is thick enough to stand proud above your
palm and the missing corner does not intrude because
of the 75mm width


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 tomo naguara
slurry stone, and a money back guarantee minus the return shipping.
