Awase-To

These small slurry stones were cut from Awasedo-quality Tennen Toishi. Some were reclaimed from broken, cracked or damaged stones, while others were specifically cut to be a high quality Tomo Nagura.

I have separated them into a few classes; harder, softer and Karasu. It is important to remember that there will always be soft stones that are harder than others, some hard stones that are harder than others, as well as Karasu that fall on either side of the line.
