Jnat recommendation

Good morning, Mark.

I currently sharpen straight razors, using a combination of Shapton Glass Stones and an Ozuku Asagi (koppa) as a finisher. However, I would like to switch my progression to using ONLY JNATS from beginning to end. Can you recommend a progression?

My current progression is as follows:

Shapton Glass Stone (SGS) : 1000 grit (only used when I need to re-establish the bevel or do repair)

SGS: 6000 (used from time to time)

Norton 4000/8000 combo stone

Ozuku Asagi (koppa): Finisher

Hi Cesar,

Try this:

Atago: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/atmequ1.html

Then use your Ozuku. You might want to do one more stone before your Ozuku like the Yaginoshima or the Ohira Tomae or the Shobu but that's up to you.
