Narutaki iro tomae #809
Massive 3 pound 10oz. iro color tomae stone is super fine and perfect for knives or tools.
A lifetime worth of stone it is fast cutting and leaves a chrome finish on hard steel and for
those using bi-metal blades, will leave the soft iron with a soft hazy finish thereby
providing that classic finish. A small patch of kawa skin and the lipstick red thread seen
on the back indicate the Narutaki mine that was known for large size stones. Not a hard
stone it would benefit by being sealed with lacquer.
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.
