Okudo asagi tomae #382
This is a level 5 hardness stone that is super smooth with an olive
green layer of asagi and a darker gray gousa layer core underneath
of similar hardness as you can see in the photos. The top asagi
layer has a foggy pattern similar to the Nakayama stones but the iron
rich kawa skin on the back is exactly like you would expect from
Okudo stones. The stone is in excellent condition from front to back
and side to side with no inclusions or toxic lines. I have shaved off
this stone with total comfort after raising a slurry with a diamond plate
I honed up a razor in just a few minutes..
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 return shipping.
