An excellent all purpose suita suited for a wide range of tasks. Feedback is very smooth and the lines cause no issue at this time. The kasumi finish is bright and refined highlighting the detail in blade materials and leaving a surface that is “scratch-free” in all but the harshest light. This is an excellent stone suitable for a wide range of tasks - final sharpening of kitchen knives, kasumi polishing, tools, and razors. Ohira suita like this are what helped give the mine such exceptional repute. 

Terrific value.

Aesthetics & Other Notes

This creamy colored suita is shows aka (red) renge. The golden lines are benign at this time and I see no reason they wouldn't continue to be so. 

This stone is not sealed but the surface stamps remain intact. 

Ohira (大平, Oohira, Ohirayama)

A Western mine famous for Uchigumori and the quality of its suita. Although the mine is still occasionally worked, it is increasingly challenging to find uchigumori and Ohira suita available for export. Reportedly, many togishi are worried about the long term supply of quality uchigumori stones. Due to the premium that comes with Ohira suita and uchigumori, it is not uncommon to see stones from other mines stamped or sold as Ohira.
