#2102 Narutaki huge iro tomae
Air Raid Shelter Hoard stone

Narutaki was known for the very large stones they gave forth, this
is no exception. Weighing 1547 grams or 3.5 pounds it is only
slightly wedged shaped towards one end, and this same end
is the reason I sealed the sides and back in lacquer. There
was a patch of kawa skin the and I believe that the cracks at
this spot near that corner were a result of the mining extraction.

A really nice stone to use, it can hone a razor but it really is
a knife or tool stone like for chisels. The top surface has streakes
of red and flashes of yellow on a beige ground. Medium soft it
provides lots of fresh grit particles for fast cutting.

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.
