I can get the popular Suehiro Rika without a base attached. I was wondering if I should switch to baseless? I also wanted an excuse to try using the poll feature. :)

I like baseless myself for pretty much every stone.
You can use the bottom and leave the print on the top. Also easier since it fits a stone holder and you don't have to switch when you reach 5k.

Baseless! I have one on the base and the base fills up with water when I leave it soaking and takes forever to drain.

I have the same issue. I usually like stones without bases so I'm going to switch.

I'm also going to get the Kitayama baseless as well.

+500 haha it is so annoying when finished sharpening you have to let it sit in the sink to drain out before laying on a towel! Also I just like baseless stones!!!
