so a while back, i got myself a shoubu suita as a birthday present to myself... it came as a highly recommended stone. Then, with the opening of the store and whatnot, it just sat there for a month. I finally had a chance to start using it last week and wow... i think i found my newest favorite stone.

I'm going to try to post some pics of the slurry and finish, but i'm getting some sweet kasumi finishes off of this stone. Here are some pictures of the stone when i got it:

anyways, when i get into the shop tomorrow, i'll try to take some pictures of the finishes i am getting from this stone... its sweet
