how do I (or do I?) clean the Suzuri/inkstone when I'm done writing, because if I dump the ink in the sink, then I feel that I'm wasting alot of it.

Hello! Konnichiwa! Cleaning the Suzuri ink stone: When you're done using the suzuri ink stone, remove any ink that is left with a paper towel. Don't let the ink dry before washing. Wash the stone with your fingers, a soft fabric, or a paper towel. Use lots of water to remove all the ink. Once washed, dry the stone with soft cloth or paper. Then, cover the suzuri so that it doesn't collect any dust. I would advice not to reuse the ink you have made in the suzuri. It's always best to make as much ink, or as little ink as possible so that you don't have to waste too much. Have fun! Mata ne! :shock:

Suzuri ink stone is... ... a flat grinding stone used to make Sumi Ink.:shock: It has a sloping indentation which forms a smalll well at one end. A Sumi ink stick is ground on the stone surface with plain water to produce a liquid ink.

so you use it to write stuff?

Puddle-san, You use the Suzuri ink stone to make SUMI INK. Once you have the ink, you dip your FUDE "brush" in it and write! :D

[quo]*Quote from * puddle whats a Suzuri ink stone?[/quo] suzuri is the japanese word for ink-stone, and fude is the Japanese word for a calligraphy brush, and sumi is the japanese for ink (I think).
