Kita Nagura 12

I am cleaning out my closet and I had a broken yellow tennin toishi stone. I cut this kita stone up into small to medium size nagura, suitable to build a fine slurry paste on your sharpening stone. The paste from a high grade tennin toishi will lubricate while you polish. The paste will enhance the quality of your stone. Please note the sizes listed, the pictures are not to scale. I cut up some very high quality yellow stone pieces into small to medium size nagura. It weighs 29 grams and measures 45 X 22 X 13 mm at triangle legs (25.4mm = 1"). See pictures for its profile. It is sold by weight. I will combine shipping, please ask.

If you have any questions I will be glad to try and answer. Thank you for looking and good luck bidding.
