    my two non soakers are kitayama and arishiyama
    It's like my ol' grandpappy used to say; "The less one makes declarative statements, the less apt he is to look a fool in retrospect"

    I soak pretty much every stone I own, including Naniwa superstones, permanently. The SS's seem to benefit from being permasoaked, the 1000 especially used to glaze up every time i let it near something stainless, but now it builds mud faster and the glazing problem is fixed. I change the water as often as I remember - about twice a week.

    Can anyone confirm permasoak status on the Suehiro Rika 5000? I perm the Beston/Bester stones but I've never soaked the Suehiro indefinitely.

    i had mine soaked for years... just be careful with the wooden bases on the older ones... the new plastic ones soak a bit easier, but can retain water and get more mud inside... just be clean about it

    Ok thanks, Jon. I do notice that it seems like you can spend an hour shaking water out of the base if you wanted to, ha.
