View Full Version : Suehiro Kouga 3000 waterstone

It is a fact that the "Rika" 5k from Suehiro is considered a reference by many - but I couldn't find any reviews around the "Kouga" 3k from same manufacturer.
Do you guys use/have used it? Is it as interesting as the "Rika"?

One of our vendors Schtoo from Tools from Japan (http://www.toolsfromjapan.com/store/) sells these stones, maybe shoot him a PM or post within in his subforum (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/forumdisplay.php/86-Tools-from-Japan)

LOL Jon, one of these days you'll have to post a family pic of all your personal stones... and another one of all your collection of knives, that is if you can find a camera with a sufficiently big wide angle lens...
