No.891 Honyama Knife Stone


#891 buff color tennen toishi

I really do not know which mine this stone came from,  however I am sure it is from one of the Kyoto Honyama mines. This is a stone for knives slightly soft it will self slurry under the pressure of a blade. A grit rich stone it will easily hone up almost any type of steel. From front to back and side to side you can see how pure it is. Perfectly shaped it will fit into any stone holder. Pretty much an ideal knife stone.

The stone (toishi) has been lapped flat and the corners and edges beveled unless otherwise noted. All of my stones come with a tested and appropriately sized tomonaguara slurry stone, and a money back guarantee minus the return shipping.
