Karasu Asagi Jnat

Difficult Karasu 1

Karasu Asagi Tennen Toishi

I love Karasu, or Crow, patterned stones. I’m a sucker for all wildly striking visual features, and Karasus always get my attention quickly.  This stone has a bit of a brownish/rusty color running through it in a few places, which is somewhat unique. 

This one seems to be right on the line between hard and very hard. The feedback is real nice and easy to read, and the speed is, overall, very good.  The size and shape is perfect for a bench stone, but it’s also small enough for hand-held honing. 

Approx. Dimensions: 7.0 x 2.5 x 0.75” / 178 x 64 x 19 mm
