So is this a name of a person or company ?

Thanks for taking the time to trace this down, my searches have come up with very little on Tosuke other than he was a razor maker that was uder Iwasaki, he did not work for him but produced razors on his own in the same timeframe

I asked my friend who lives in Tokyo and this what he told me, Because it is a created name, not a normal word, it is a bit weird, but roughly "kotobuki" is like good fortune or auspiciousness and "tama" is just a ball or sphere.

Jamie,

Thank you for taking the time, its a bit confusing to me so just going to assume it's a true NOS Tosuke as was stated in the sale.

Still playing around with this Shinden Asagi from Japan Stone, love the feed back this stone gives compared to a Okudo Asagi I am also testing but the Okudo gives much better feedback on water only laps but the Shinden seems to be a tad bit keener.

   

2-Stone Progression:
Mid-Work: Shapton 8K Glass
Finisher: Shinden Asagi  with DN slurry & tomo slurry
Strop: Kanayama suede and leather

Thanks William always a pleasure working on quality razors, and without doubt Filarmonica's are the easiest of all razors to hone.
