    King 800, 1000 and 1200 can all be permasoaked. Suehiro rika with base can also be permasoaked. Beston 500, bester 1200 and gesshin 400 and Jinzo aoto also permasoakers.

    Gesshin 6000 is spash & go, but can be permasoaked. It should however not be soaked and then dried on regular basis as it may develop cracks (personal experience). This is also stated on JKI website - I should have read more carefully.

    I've read conflicting info on the Suehiro Rika and perma soaking. As a result I only perma soak half of mine.

    I believe that the Suehiro Rika used to come with documentation that stated to not soak it.....BUT......it used to be sold with a wood base so maybe this had something to do with that? Anyway, even though I've never soaked a Rika long term myself (I only have a wood based version) many people have and report no negative side effects. I'd assume that we could say that this stone can be perma-soaked if it has the newer plastic base or no base at all but I'll leave this to be answered by those users who have these types and have tested this theory out.

    Stu would be your main man but I perma soak my 1200 and have tried soaking my 400, 6000 and 13000 grits long term and noticed no ill effects. They seem to even like it a little bit.

    Are you looking to put all known synthetic stones on the list or just the more common ones?

    I ask because there's a lot of stone brands that are sold that we don't hear much about because they're not common, if added to the list it might take some searching to get the info required for soak & drying times.

    Occurs to me if you covered all the stones the vendors here offer it would be pretty comprehensive. And you would have an authoritative source(s) for any questions.

    Thanks for pulling this together.
