This Ozuku tomae was trimmed perfectly in the plane with the kawa back layer. Homogenous to the extreme it has a foggy kasumi pattern that is peaceful but grit-rich and fast cutting. The price reflects the irregular shape, Mohs 3 rates it as an easy stone to raise a slurry. All my stones come with a tested tomonagura slurry stone.

All of my stones are sold with a money-back guarantee minus the return shipping if within 30 days of the sale and returned in their original state. Please do not lacquer the stone if you have any intention of returning it.
I encourage sealing the sides of all sedimentary stones, especially if there a inclusions, cracks, or fissures and or if the stone is used in an active workshop where the stone is constantly wet. For casual use, sealing, especially all four sides, and preferably the back with one of either a marine type of spar varnish, a synthetic lacquer, urushi, or a cashew-derived lacquer is prudent.
