#868 Tomae

For a razor stone this is overly thick and will last two lifetimes. A really
clear grained tomae in a light gray, there are no inclusions but it looks like
from the sides and the ends that this stone may tend towards a karasu
pattern in the middle of the stone as you can see by the last photo below
that includes a comparison karasu toishi. Super smooth and tight with crisp
cutting grit that with my Henckels razor bowed to I was able to hone up that
razor to shave ready from bevel set in just a few minutes.

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