Nakayama rare suita  #723

Another excellent example of a rare suita from the Nakayama mine. This
one is slightly flawed with two inclusions that run from the sides onto the
top of the stone, which the price reflects. The inclusions have been sealed
with CA glue and they will now not absorb water. One side as an excellent
example of Nakayama kawa of sparkling black, and the back or the ocher
minerals and the black.

Nakayama suita stones are rare and I just stumbled into a hoard of these
koppa sizes. I have shaved off this one as a hand held stone and it felt
thin in my palm and I think it would be nicer if it was mounted on a wooden
base. In any case it created  an excellent and highly refined edge that was
smooth, close and comfortable.

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.This stone will be
shipped with a tested tomonagura slurry stone.
