Nakayama Hatahoshi

Nakayama Kiita Iromono Hatahoshi 

A good friend of mine picked this up for me at the 2016 Kezuro Kai Tournament. 

This one has perfect hardness, it’s very hard but there’s also an unreal level of that addictive Nakayama feeling under the steel. It doesn’t get better than this.

The age of this stone is unknown, although a few collectors have speculated that it’s from the late 1940s or early 1950s.  What I do know for sure is that this one rivals and surpasses any I’ve ever owned or honed on.
