A Ozaki gray/green asagi kamisori toisi that is a excellent razor hone, I have shave tested this stone which
provided and very clean and close shave with no irritation of any kind. A hard stone, it can be used up into the
polishing stage, and being long and narrow it is perfect for users who like X strokes or have blades with
smiles.  


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 1920s 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.
