These Yellow Ohira Range Suitas i got again as limited stock ! They are very hard to come by even in Japan and very seldom come on sale. I will rather to kip them then sell them to cheap so thats why price is bit high ! On my trip to Japan i visited many shops and wholesalers of Natural stones and i only have seen 2 stones like that and they was not for sale :) On my viset to Shigefusa he told me that he have tryid many many Natural stones over the years but he choosed only to use 2, both of them was that kind of Ohira Suitas Non of the lines on the stone are toxic or scratch the knife !!! and even can be field.
Even in Japan these stones is very rare and many stones shops do not sell them ! or sell them to only good costumers for a lot of money.
As you know i run out of all my Ohira White range suitas and have to get more from Ohira owner. So this time I got new batch of Ohira Yellow Range suitas they are more expensive this time but well worth it. They have bit more buttery feeling then White suitas i sold before.
Next time i have to get them they will be even more expensive As i choose only the best and finest ones !! But still price is very cheap compared to other retailers in Japan ! If you will be able to get them
This stone is very big and uniform and do not have any inclusions or lines that is toxic, very buttery filing !! Collector grade !!
This one is very unusual gray and yellow with black and red Range patterns. Its because it is closer to Uchigomori layer, Line do not affect sharpening at all !
