Notes: A super consistent and easy to use Tomae from the famed Ohira mine. I love a good Tomae as they tend to be a nice firmness that is easy to use, while providing a fast, reliable and easy Kasumi. They also play well with edges and offer a more refined edge but with just the right amount of bite. They are great pre pre or pre polishers. This is a great price for this size and quality stone.
