    where did you get that?

    Eh, it's a little spendy. Anyone care to knock up a review for that thing? I'm really interested in the concept, but not $65 + shipping interested.

    Jinzo = Synthetic
    Renge = Lotus

    ... so Jinzo Renge Suita = synthetic lotus-pattern Suita.

    Push down with moderate pressure and it cuts fast, ease back and use light pressure and it is a great finisher.

    The picture of the stone looks like yours, Seb, even if the name isn't the same.

    I'm not sure, Rick. The Jinzo Renge Suita (JRS) is made by Saico, Sigma Power's parent company, but it's not badged as a SP. And, to confuse things more, there is at least one other series. IIRC, Stu also offered me that one but he mentioned that it's harder and even faster.

    And the box in that link reads (I think): "Siggumapawaseramikku; highest grade for cutlery", so it's the SP Ceramic series and not the JRS.

    Can't argue with you Seb, but they sure do look alike:
