Do not buy their products. Do not get your work done by their techs. Avoid them at all costs. Buy a Systema.
It would appear that Suzutomo has gotten into bed with FCC. Another manufacturer to avoid now unfortunately.
I would place their steel quality in their gear train no higher than gouda myself.
