First this is a re-post as I posted it in the new intro page, sorry Ryan guess you got to clean up my mess again
Ok this is not a full out J-nat stone review as 1st, I just got it nod only played with it for a few minutes. 2nd, you can tell from looking at it that the stone needs no review
What I would like to do is say thank you to Maksim. In the past I have gotten all my J-nats from SO at Japanese tool .com When your spending big $$ on a rock you want to buy it from someone you can trust. Maksim was very helpful and knowledgeable, hell he even has videos of the stones in use don't get much better then that! He response to emails very fast, I don't know the time deference between us but it was like he was waiting in front of his computer 24 hours a day.
Any way he gets a big thumbs up and thank you from me
Here are some picks of the Ohira suita.
Note the condition this stone came in. Supper flat with the edges beveled perfectly...Dave will love this...And I don't think he took your class
