Slightly green asagi, a very sweet slightly softer tomae. This modest size toishi was cut for razors at 156 x 54 x 10 to 12mm thick, 258g is one of the easiest razor hones to use. With a moderate tomonagura slurry (tomo included) you can take a Henckels razor from 1, 2, or 5k bevel set or touch up to shave ready in minutes leaving a soft hazy finish. The back is not perfectly even and you can see where there are two areas of loss. The price reflect these defects.
USA Shipping is free, everywhere else is $35 by USPS Priority Mail.
