Nakayama Maruichi Kamisori Lv 5
Nice Maruichi Kamisori slab of Nakayama. A very thick slab at that, very consistent grain that leaves an extremely sharp edge in little time.
The edges light testing without lapping left on my Kamisori and a small chisel were deceptively sharp for such a short time on the stone with plain water, the edges polished, iron swarf but no slurry. A very nice hone with great honing feel. The shave was very keen, smooth and close.
Width- 44.1 mm
Thickness- 44.5 mm
