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 has a beautiful grey/blue with some suita holes and great natural stone skin. These microscopic holes make these stones cut exceptionally fast. Its very rare to find a Ohira Suita this nice anymore. It would be a great add to anyone's collection
