#21 Karasu kiita with karasu back

Another reason to look back in time when the mines were producing unique
possibilities. This is clearly a kiita color stone, the back is clearly a karasu.
Karasu are thought to only be found in the Namito strata which is one of the
tomae strata layers. Kiita is also found in tomae strata. I have never before
had a chance to sell a combination stone like this.

A beautiful stone to use, a bit thin and should be mounted but really fine and
super fast in the 5++ range and will remove 1.000 grit scratches with just a
few passes which are then replaced with a fine soft kasumi or hazy finish.
Every time I have honed a razor on this stone it became shave ready within a
couple of minutes using TheAxMethod.

The stone (toishi) has been lapped perfectly 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.
