Shobudani karasu tomae #284
The Dream Stone

An unforgetable stone in use and appearance probably one of the more handsomest
stones I have ever owned. Shobudani closed early on was located not more then 3/4 of a
mile from Nakayama and its stones were very similar. Along with the crows in flight black
pattern there is a touch of rouge along with a base of khaki with undertones of olive and
yellow. This is a hard stone, it will come with a tested tomonagura but the stone can be
used with a slurry made with a diamond plate, tomonagura or with just clear water. The
karasu pattern looks to run through the stone.

This stone is large enough to use as a bench stone or small enough to use as a hand
held stone.

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.
