i broke out my Suehiro 8000 stone (the white one), today. i love the results i get from this thing. very aggressive, yet refined. quick cutter, considering the grit. however, i absolutely hate the feel of the stone. it is too hard, very thirsty and always feels chalky. any suggestions for a replacement? some steels really need the more aggressive edge i get from this stone, and it's a stone i use whenever i'm going to be cutting a lot of tomatoes, but i don't like using it much. i have a Kitayama, a 10kSS and a nice Asagi, and none of them due what this stone does.
