Ozuku Karasu ~ Lv 5
This is a very rare and very sought after stone. Prices keep going up on Karasu, especially from famous mines like this ozuku. If I do choose to sell another one, it will be for more as I will have to pay more to replace it.
I love this stone, although it is a hard stone- it doesn't feel dead. It has great honing feel and can put an excellent finish on a Razor as well as a sword. the karasu pattern of this Ozuku isn't scratchy which is my primary concern when purchasing karasu stones. Excellent stone and always excellent edges and shaves from this stone.
Like all Natural Japanese Water stones pictured with a paulownia box on my site- paulownia box included.
