#559 Narutaki Hachai iromono
A knife stone that is not afraid to play the part. This is not a razor or a tool stone, just one of the best knife stones you will ever use and you will want to use it every day. Super fine it will efficiently sharpen both blue and high carbon white steel. Not problem using it as a pre-finishing stone for the keenest edge, or with just clear water it will release a slurry and the black swarf peels off the blade. This is not a hard stone so fresh grit is always at the surface of the stone.
The stone is a brick red with veins of yellow sand and hints of green.
The stone (toishi) has been lapped perfectly flat and the corners and edges
beveled unless otherwise noted. All of my stones come with a money back
guarantee minus the return shipping.
Grit Finness 9+
Speed/Cutting 8+++ to 9++ with slurry
