    Ohira Range Suita - wow what a color. I assume all of those lines are non-toxis? gorgeous.

    Just got 2 new to my collection

    Deal was that i send my supplier my Rare western Naturals and he send me his So i did not know what i get to make it bit fun
    So i Shipped him my Eschers, Coticules and some French Nat stone.

    And here is what i got for first batch i get 3 more stones next week

    First one blows Aizu in all !!!! Rarity and performance
    When i looked at it i thought Aoto and i got straight answer that is not Aoto !!!!
    It is Saeki, and not just reguler Saeki it is black Saeki witch is very Rare, you can stil get brown Saekis if you are lucky, but they are much much softer and very slow !!

    It hase some sparkels all over the stone, very difficult to see on the picture. But very beautiful in person.
    All Lines and small inclusions is not toxic at all and even can not be field.
    It took me about 1 hr to lap it with 140grit Atoma Then i just gave up and there are stil some deep lines in the stone, they will go away with time
    Fines of that stone is approx same as Very fine Aoto but speed man..... !!!! I took my Honyaki witch is super hard to sharpen and it took no time to raze a burr and finish was super uniform !
    Wow this is my new favored medium stone ! it cuts like 1k maybe lower but finishes like 4k with mud maybe 6k.

    Here is some pictures there will come some videos later

    Second is 3 kg Shinden suita Raw stone. Also Very Rare huge stone !
    At first i thought i will cut it up for Naguras, because of all those lines and very weird shape.
    But after i have tried it with my tools , kanna, chisels and kuri, i decided to kip it. Lines was not toxic at all and shape was super nice for tools !
    Very very fast stone and leves amezing finish lv 4,5 for sure maybe even more but super fast.
    i undestand why all woodworkers in japan go for those yellow suitas like Shinden or Okudo, you will need only 1 stone for your work space
    And you can just leve it as display stone, because it looks so cool

    Agree, when can we get one?

    I have not heard about black Saeki before. What are the sparkles?

    Unfortunately this stones is imposible to find now my supplier had only this one and it was in his privet collection.
    I told him to look for some to sell, but he just say its super difficult ! If he find any he will let me know, it have to be from some carpenters that are willing to sell they used ones.
    I can only get some brown ones but they are really not worth of having ! More like Amakusa stones
    BTW Saeki is Kyoto stone
