#20 Honyama asagi iromono bench stone

The is a honyama awasedo probably from Narutaki or possibly Nakayama judging from the straight line namazuline of alternate grit. The green (iro)color has a yellow component. Super smooth this is a razor grade stone in
all ways except that it is too large by most standards.
In a bench stone format that will leave a knife razor like sharp, and it will hone a razor to shave ready HHT-5 levels. Glued to a wooden dai base, painted black, it
does not sit perfectly flat on a table.
Close but not perfect.

The stone (toishi) has been lapped flat and the corners and edges beveled unless otherwise noted.
