A nagura stone is recommended to aid in creating some slurry. This stone is great for knives, razors, and tools. These stones are mined in Kyoto Japan. Natural whetstones wear much slower then synthetic stones. This stone will last years if not tens of years.
This Suita is a absolute stunner. Suita"s are some of my favorite stones. This Suita has (Su- small white holes that help cut fast and raise slurry), it also has a beautiful grey, and Nashiji pattern. A near perfect specimen, Suita from the last strata that is used for stones in mining. That is why they are hard to come by and prized.
