Medium hard asagi honyama toishi #499

A super fine finishing stone from either the Ozuku but probably as the kawa suggests
from the Okudo mine. This stone can be used for either tools or razors as the last stone,
only Lv 5 hardness it will self slurry with some pressure from a chisel but with razors not
so much. In either case it produces a shave ready edge with little effort. The back is not
perfectly flat as you can see in the photos so a stone holder is a good option. The
streaking of blue that runs to the left of center is in the clays and the grit composition is
homogeneous throughout the stone.

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