#494 Shobudani uchigumori suita

This semi hard suita is from the Tenjyou layer that produces uchigumori.
It s very pure and full of renge red patterns representing ancient radiolarian
tests that contain Si0
2. silicon dioxide, the most comon silica form found
in the natural sharpening stones in Japan. This particular stone is very fine
and will sharpen almost any type of steel blade while leaving the steel with
a mellow hazy chrome look. The back side does have a missing corner
but it is solid in that area, the price reflects this factor. The one area of
white namazu is filled, solid and not toxic in any way.

I would recommend this stone for tools and knives as a final stone. If used
with straight razors the resulting edge will be razor sharp with a comfort level
of the most refined state. This stone will be shipped with a tested tomonagura
slurry stone.

The stone (toishi) has been lapped  flat and the corners and edges
beveled unless otherwise noted.  All of my stones come with a money back
guarantee minus the return shipping.
