So, with the red (green) aoto from Maxim, and the Kizuyama suita from schanop (which is also from Maxim).
I can now officially join the club! I am sure more will come :D
The Red aoto (actually I think is is a hybrid between red and green, certainly feels harder than schanop's red aoto)
The Kizuyama suita
Yes, this one def looks like it's on the green side rather than red, which should mean it's harder - which I'd probably prefer. Very useful stone, I think you'll find.
it's indeed a really nice stone, very easy to work out the mud, and gives much better finish than synthetic stones. I am in fact getting rid of my shapton gs now :D

The green aoto is very handy; interestingly, it gave a far better edge to my stainless petty than all of my other stones, and of course it's great with the carbons too.
Probably the Best Ohira Range Suita i ever seen Type 30 :bigeek:
Just perfect, it is sold now and going to US soon
Wow! That one is so nice it looks like it's been manufactured to precision!
(Why sell? You should have kept it for your collection ;)
haha i have wayyy to many stones now for my self :D I dont even use half of them
Oh really? Then time for a discount sale!
