Trying to find a stone to use in between an Atoma 140x and a Shapton Glass 500.

Looking at the Nubatama Bamboo 150 OR the Shapton Glass 220.

Thoughts on these as gap fillers and for starting off a badly dull knife or knife needing reprofiling or nick repairs?

Thanks!

Glass 220 would be nice for that gap.

Is the Shapton Glass very different than the Pros in the sense that all are essentially good for both carbon steels and stainless?

from what i've read, glass stones are great on both stainless and carbons.

l have both the 220 & 320 GS. Both work great but it's not necessary to have both. I'd go for the 320 if I just could have one.

Bamboo 150 - faster than the 220 and MUCH more stone. Faster at removing scratches from the Atoma 140. Once the scratch pattern from the Atoma is 'converted' to a stone scratch pattern, you might find - depending on the knife being sharpened - that you may be able to skip the 500 too as it leaves a nice finish. Very slow dishing too.

And depending on the knife too you may not need to use the Atoma too much either :)

Ok I'll admit it - my 150 Bamboo is my favorite low grit stone.

150 Bamboo will convert the scratches and refine them somewhat too. Still the 320 or 220 is a better progression for me personally because it offers a smaller jump to the 500 and a 320 to 1k jump is what I use daily.

Just my 2 cents.

I'm not really sure that you need a stone between the Atoma and a 500 grit Shap. If you do, the 320 Shap Pro is awesome. From there I just jump up to 1k.
