Shobudani karasu #186

An odd shaped koppa that is large enough to use as a hand
held stone, I have honed a vintage Henckels razor with this stone
and the shave was really nice and smooth and close. Looking at
a photo of the stone it is hard to believe how smooth and fine it
really is. There is a toxic inclusion on each side but I have already
picked them out and now they will not affect the blade. For testing the
stone I first raised a slurry with a diamond plate and the slurry
was a cream colored with a gray undertone. The slurry darkened
with just the first passes with a razor.  A great stone in a small size and
affordable because of the inclusions.

The stone (toishi) has been lapped perfectly flat and the corners
and edges beveled unless otherwise noted.  All of my stones
come with a money back guarantee minus the return shipping.This
stone will be shipped with a tested tomonagura slurry stone.
