This Nakayama suita is one of the thinnest stones that came from the Hoard. It is 15mm at one end and the other is 10mm at one corner and 12mm at the other. The general color of the stone is dull yellow with splatters of red renge and black goma or seseme seed dots. None of these are toxic to any blade and do not advance the cutting speed beyond the grit found in the yellow toned silica.
This stone is a generous 75mm for western razors, a bit too wide for kamisori but fine enough for either. I tested the stone on a Henckeles Friodur using TheAxMethod and had a great smooth shave. I will come with a tested tomonagura slurry stone.
