Great resource here,,,
So I got the 8 pc set with the Beston, Ume, and Rika stones. My question (1st one) is can these be perma soaked or should I let them dry out between uses?
thanks, jm

I've perma soaked the beston and the rika and they are not a problem but i normally don't do this at home, just the office.

I tried out the ume for a few days after your question and it's fine too.

Thanks for checking and replying. :D
I am having a blast with these stones, everything is so sharp around here I hafta keep reminding the family! As a country boy, we were always sharpening our knifes on some stone or another but this is so much nicer.
Thanks again for the reply.

MIKEY <> You can permasoak the 500; the 2k just doesn't need nor benefit from it.

I have had my green brick under water for over a year with no issue. If taken out of water at this point it would probably crack though.

I don't like waiting for stones to soak so if they can be soaked I usually do so.

That's one of the biggest reasons I don't like Nubatama stones. I don't like to perma soak and those damn stones take a week to dry!

Have to look at them on the bench everyday, check em in the morning, "not yet" again in the evening and can still wring out the towel haha.
