This Okudo suita is very dense with a Mohs 5 hardness rating. It is homogenous from front to back, sits flat on a table or in a stone holder. The grit is razor quality but the stone is tool size. There are a few very tight lines of shinisuji (not toxic) suji that do not scratch steel but instead are cosmetic. Also there is small flecks of karasu on the top surface, and renge patterns on the back of the stone.

Excluding Sales Tax
  • All of my stones are sold with a money-back guarantee minus the return shipping if within 30 days of the sale and returned in their original state. Please do not lacquer the stone if you have any intention of returning it.

    I encourage sealing the sides of all sedimentary stones, especially if there a inclusions, cracks, or fissures and or if the stone is used in an active workshop where the stone is constantly wet. For casual use, sealing, especially all four sides, and preferably the back with one of either a marine type of spar varnish, a synthetic lacquer, urushi, or a cashew-derived lacquer is prudent.
