Shobudani figural tomae #812

Really handsome narrow tomae that is hard and super fine and
very fast cutting. With a slurry made by a worn out diamond plate it can
remove 1k scratches in just a minute and the scratch pattern left with
a slurry is super flat and fine. The back of this stone is irregularly
shaped, one side with kawa skin is beveled as an undercut from the
top edge to the back of the stone so the stone will become narrower
as it is used. Also the tail end on the back side is  thinner at 16mm
with the head end about 20mm thick. This gives the stone a slope from
head to tail. Because the stone is so hard these shape issues have
ittle effect in the near term because wear happens so slowly.

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.This stone
will be shipped with a tested tomonagura slurry stone.
