Sweet Suita, this is a tremendously easy suita to use, softer fast cutting, ultra fine, it will work on almost every kind of steel. Again, tested on the blue steel deba created lovely contrasting lamination lines. A stone I would not hesitate for anyone to use. Very compact muscular size, the back is lapped flat so it can be used on a table top, sides and ends are square so a stone holder works too. The two straight namazu lines are typical to Nakayama and are filled with a softer material, they are solid but the one on the middle area of the side has shed some material as you can see. Theres no toxic material anywhere on this stone. The back has flashes of pink and purple. A thrill to use.
