Shoubudani suita with namazu, renge, and light karasu patterns. A fast cutting self slurrying stone that makes a chalky kasumi finish 193x70x30mm 885 grams.
A super easy to use stone, it quickly makes a nice velvety feeling slurry and can remove medium grit scratches on less resistant steels (shirogami vs. hard aogami super). A great stone for making a toothy fine finish, great for a versatile double bevel finish or even for debas for those that sharpen regularly.
This is the softest and coarsest of the three Shoubudani shiro suita we have in the shop at the moment, (however it wouldn’t be considered a soft or coarse stone).
This is a great easy to use stone, $425 in SF shop and posted to Bernalcutlery.com as 172 Shoubudani Suita Namazu Renge Light Karasu
