Great finish stone
I bought this stone some years ago, and never knew who made the thing. Still not 100% sure, but I almost positive this stone is made by Suehiro. LOVE it, regardless of who makes it. It has a "creamy" feeling to me. New, the stone felt horrible, but there must have been some sort of coating, as I lapped it heavily with a diamond plate and it completely transformed this stone from my least favorite to one of my most treasured. It is soft, but not too soft...just right!!! Edges are just awesome off this one.
