Hardness / Fineness: 5- / 5-

This hand-sawn asagi is a great all-purpose fine finishing stone. It is hard, fine, and relatively easy to use. A no-fuss workhorse. With careful honing it can finish a razor and carpentry tools and is suitable for refined kasumi polishing as well. 

Aesthetics & Other Notes

The stone is a very consistent pale asagi color. There is light goma and nashiji patterning throughout. The back is hand chiseled and the sides hand-sawn - indicating this stone was mined and processed no later than the 1930s. 

Honyama ( 本山)

It is easy to get caught up in the precise prominence of certain stones. While it is always preferable to have precise information to a stones source, there are many incredible stones for which the wholesaler or vendor lacks enough information to give a precise origin. I consider it the sign of a good seller to acknowledge when a stone's mine is unknown.
