Suehiro Debado LD-601 Finishing Whetstone #4000

by Suehiro


In Ryky’s initial review, he commented the LD-601 was “snappier, denser, and more aggressive” than the Rika 5K. Since seeing Ryky’s comments, Suehiro has retested and revised the original 6K grit rating to 4K grit. The LD-601’s formula has not changed, thus keeping everything Ryky loves about this whetstone; only now, it is rated at 4K grit.

If the stone’s performance is slowing down, or seems to be diminishing, you can clean using a rust eraser, nagura stone, dressing stone, or a flattening plate. Be sure to clean the entire surface of the whetstone when using any of these methods to ensure even wear of the whetstone’s surface.
