Jon is a young retailer and I like his knife selection and what he's doing. In fact he's made me a better retailer through competition and I'm sure I've done the same for him. Let's take the high road here and let this drop. It's just a dumb stone.

I just did another video using the latte 400 to start things off. Man I love this stone!

It cuts just as fast as my Shapton 320, only dishes slightly faster, but it is a thicker stone so take that into consideration too.

I'm going to attempt to hang out here more on the Sharpening section now, I tend to only sparsely post here because sharpening gets to be such a finicky topic, I like to stay to the basics and let each user tailor his routine the way he likes it.

I'm going to order one as soon as it is back in stock.

I have a SG 500 and it in about a month, it may be just a plate of glass, getting down there but still works just like the day I purchased it

I love coarse stones. Going to go watch that video Shaun

I currently have a very cheap 240/1000 king that i bought from SLT. I RARELY use the 240 side because I think its too coarse. Judging by all the love for this 400 latte, I may have to add it to my wish list. How does it compare to the Beston 500 (the other stone on my wish list)?

there are videos on youtube about the beston 500, might help in comparing the latte with this.

Here's a nice video Shaun did with the latte, green brick and snow white.

Beston 500 cuts a bit quicker, but leaves harsh looking scratches, kinda like a diamond stone. The scratches polish out fairly easily, but they are noticeable. On a Kasumi blade, there is a difference, but very scratchy looking. The Latte 400 cuts a touch slower, but has a much smoother scratch pattern and starts a really nice Kasumi finish and turns the cladding a dark grey. If you need to remove metal quick and don't care about the scratches or spending more time polishing them out, gets the Bester 500. If you want to do the kasumi hazy finish, or want a coarse stone that is a bit slower and easier to control, get the Latte. The Bester 500 worked a bit quicker on M390, but the Latte 400 also does a really nice job, too.
