Narutaki faint green asagi tomae #510

This oversize hand held stone can also be used in a stone holder but I tested it as a
hand held stone. A level 4 to 4+ hardness it will soak up water and you slurry will dry out
in a matter of minutes. It is a fast cutting and self slurrying stone that is easy to use and I
was able to hone up a razor with very little effort and the resulting shave was close and
comfortable. There is a area of kawa skin on the back that has a lipstick red color that is
found on the Narutaki stones. No cracks but one end is undercut as you can see in the
photos, there is still a lot of meat left at this end and in general at 27mm thick many years
are built into this beauty.

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.
