Features Technical Specs
Suehiro Rika 5000x Waterstone w/base
Here's a great value waterstone. The Suehiro Rika 5000x is one of the best feeling/feedback waterstones I've ever used, a pure joy to work with.
This stone offers, what appears to be, a 3000x edge (not very shiny) however the edge quality is 5000x, no question about it. This stone makes a great stopping point for double bevel knives.
Stone comes mounted on sturdy plastic base.
Requires soaking in water - but only soak for as long as it takes to stay wet on the surface. If stone goes dry quickly it needs more time in the water.
Size - 210 x 75 x 23mm

Great Finishing Stone March 30, 2014
Reviewer: Douglas Benach from Lutherville, MD United States  
I really love The Suehiro Rika 5000x.  It is far better than the King 6000 it replaced.  It has taken my sharpening skills to a new level.

WOW! March 25, 2014
Reviewer: Doug  
I just have to tell you…..WOW!
I love my new Suehiro Rika.  It arrived today and I couldn’t be happier.  It is a joy to use, especially after cutting my teeth on a King 6K.
In retrospect it was probably not a bad thing to learn on such a difficult stone as the King but the Rika is leagues ahead.  My confidence and knife sharpness have improved in just the first day with it.  Look out Murray Carter  ha ha.
Thanks again for your help.

Very happy with the whole process November 1, 2013
Reviewer: Rick Enrico from Minnetonka , MN United States  
Very satisfied with the product. All products protected well and I received exactly what was ordered. I will continue to use this companies service in the future. I haven't used the stone yet but anticipate great edges in the future from this product. My only concern is that the base lasts as long as the stone.

An excellent polishing stone April 1, 2013
Reviewer: from Coos Bay, OR United States  
I expected the Suehira to be a very hard "hone" and difficult to use, but I was pleasantly surprised. It hugs the blade well enough to sharpen it in addition to adding a polish. The stone resharpens most of my kitchen knives without moving them up from courser stones. I highly recommend it.

I've had two of these wt. wood bases December 12, 2012
Reviewer: Keith Sinclair from Honolulu, HI United States  
The first got fr. Cherry Co. Japan Imports about 10 yrs. ago.It was a Blue box wt. sticker(Shiage Toishi Masamoto).I really liked this stone & used it for yrs. mostly on my Yanagi at work.

Much later I read alot about the Suehiro Rika on Forums & decided to order one.Was very surprized to find out that it was the exact same stone in a diff. box.

I have collected a few more polishing stones.Still the Rika is one of my favorites.It is a terrific stone for the price.
