    Default Japanese naturals!which one?

    Hello guys!!!I long ago wanted a Japanese natural as a finishing stone!!! I have found these two stones on ebay!!

    the first stone is a suita!!it says on the left "very best quality" and on the right i am sure that it says " original mountain suita strata" and maybe says "finishing".

    For those prices I would buy a stone from one of our members. You can contact Old_School or Huntmol. Do a little shopping between these members and I think you'll be pleased.

    I got my Nakayama from OLD_SCHOOL here. He well set you straight, I often like to look at the current stones he has on sale here Japanese whetstones. He sells nothing but great natural finishing stones.

    I have a natural from Old_School and I am very satisfied.

    I also have a suita that I bought locally years ago and that is not a finishing grade of stone for a razor.

    Just my $.02,
