Shobudani kiita koppa #274

A great thick but small hand held koppa of Shobudani kiita, not the really bright yellow
stuff but the mellow fine and smooth old fashioned kiita that is dull looking. The sides are
sealed but the top is lapped perfectly flat and the back shows some portions of unsealed
kawa skin that is typical with the washed out coloration of Shobudani stones. I honed a
razor with this stone using circles and some pig-tail edge leading strokes and the cutting
action is really fast with the slurry turning black in the first few strokes. Someone into
hand held stones will call this his favorite.


The toishi has been lapped perfectly flat, the sides dressed and the corners and edges
beveled unless otherwise noted.  All of my stones come with a money back guarantee
minus the shipping.
