Thanks Steve. The Samurai video came from http://www.facebook.com/swordpolish
(I hope this link to Facebook works) which is a page full of very pretty, very costly sharp things. And he does Godzilla dioramas, so, c'mon, how cool is that?
What do you folks think about a coarse Shapton? Some other threads seem to suggest I could go 320 > 1000 in Glass Stones instead of 220 > 500 > 1000. How much speed would I lose cutting bevels in stainless steel using the 320 instead of the 220? Would a 320 Shapton cut faster than a coarse DMT plate (C=320 according to DMT grit charts)? I really don't like the DMT scratches but it's hard to beat the versatility of the C/XC double sided plate.
