Hardness / Fineness: 4+ / 5-

This stone is hard and fine but comes with excellent sharpening feel and speed. It will not generate mud and I recommend forcing a slurry to speed up sharpening for knives. Rather it will rapidly build up black slurry as you work the blade on the stone. With appropriate patience and technique the stones leaves a glossy, refined kasumi on both soft clad and core steel. Edges are refined, but extremely well suited to kitchen knives both single and double beveled. This stone also works nicely with carpentry tools such as chisels and kanna as well as razors. 

The line through the center can be felt, but doesn't cause scratching.  

Aesthetics & Other Notes

Unusual, but not unheard of, this white-based stone has dense renge patterning. 

Okudo (奥殿)

An Eastern mine famous for its suita. These stones are often given the moniker “King of Suita” and are, perhaps, the most in coveted suita. They are generally very hard, quite fine, and rather fast. Authentic stones from Okudo are typically very expensive and rarely available.

This stone is being sold on consignment.
