I have some new items on the way for the Edge Pro. I figured I would give a preview here.

Shapton Glass Stones I've already talked about. This is the big one. (Few Weeks)
1X6 Diamond Plate 140 Grit for $14.95 (2 months out)
Shobu Natural for the EP (1 week)
Hideri Namito for EP (1 week)
Arashiyama 6K for EP (1 week)
Arahiyama 1K for EP (3 weeks)
Full selection of Nubatamas for the EP (2-3 weeks)

I'm thinking about doing an instructional DVD taylored to the custom set we have so people can easily figure out how to set the machine up and get started. (later this summer)

I'm going to have to change the name of the store to Edge Pro To Go...

So what's the deal with these nubatamas?

I've been moving more and more into j-nat's. Recently changed my progression from a strait chocera run (800, 1,3,5,10K) to:

Bester 1200
Natural Aoto (chu nagura)
Ohair (Chu Nagura)
Ozuku ( 1 micron HA diamond spray). That Rookie! Worked great. best non-stropped edge I had yet. (long lasting-ness is TBD)

I'm looking for a stone progression before the 1200. Was considering a Bester 500. Suggestions?

Also, wanted to make a general observation about japanese natural stones is that I find that a lot more pressure is needed to get them to cut the steel. I sharpened an already sharpish 180 Moritaka in AS yesterday starting with the Bester 1200. Took a while to get anysort of burr but the knife finished remarkably sharp.

What does the higher or lower number mean? I am guessing its the roughness of the stone? or grit?

Cannot comment on the Nubutama's as I do not use them at all. (my stones comprise Choseras/Shaptons/Sigma Power II's and Jnats)

You could try the Amakusa instead of the 1200 here:
