Habutae Hon Suita

Habutae 1

Habutae Hon Suita 

This piece of Hon Suita can also be called Habutae or ‘rice cake’, it’s hard, dense and fine. It’s also quite fast – it’s a great bevel setter when used with Mikawa Botan Nagura slurry. 

This is a fairly rare stone – the deepest stratum, Hon and Shiro Suita, were exhausted long ago. The stones from those layers were highly favored by traditional craftsmen for their speed and refinement capabilities.
