#196 Ozuku asagi.
This massive bench stone has hints of blue and green. Wonderfully fine and fast it is a bench stone by nature of its size. From one of the shallower early 20th century layers of the mine structure, it is not overly hard like the modern plain gray Ozuku that are designated as razor stones. I have tested this stone on modern blue and white steels and each were cut equally well. It will be accompanied by a appropriately large lifetime tomo nagura.
