Okudo Suita

Okudo Renge Suita 

This stone is a kissing cousin to the larger Okudo Suita I own. It behaves nearly identically; the only difference is that there is one or two spots on the top that feel a bit different under the blade. They have no impact on the honing, but the feedback reads those sections clearly. I think they’ll lap out eventually; the feeling was more intense when I first used the stone, but after 4-5 sessions under the DMT lapping plate, that sensation diminished significantly. 

This is a relatively hard stone that can be used to finish a razor, but I prefer to use these Suita stones for Nakado, or mid-range honing. I find that they excel for this purpose; their speed and final refinement capabilities are perfect for my needs. They put a killer edge on my kitchen cutlery, so for that task they’re finishers.
