A narrow but thick Ozaki asagi with a super even composition. This is truly a razor hone, ultra fine in grit,
perfectly even in color and texture. It was marked as the Ozaki mine and sealed by the previous collector before
it came to me. I have tested this stone using TheAxMethod and came away with a perfectly close and
comfortable shave. Ideal stone for using X strokes to hone a razor.
A tested and matched tomonagura will be included with this stone. All of my stones come fully lapped with
beveled edges unless otherwise noted.
This stone and the other kamisori toishi on my site are from a world class private collection of over 400 pieces
assembled in Japan over the past years in the area around Toyama by a collector of shaving implements. I
was lucky enough to purchase total collection over the last 2 years. Many of the hones were actually used by
barbers, some dating to the 1920 s or earlier, while others were simply prepared by the miners as razor hones
as evidenced by the size and fine quality of the stones grit composition.
