Hey folk's,

Just a quick question, I am considering getting the King 800/6000 combo stone (wanted to get a better stone set but mr. taxman was not nice to me this year, lol.) Anyways, just wanted to know if it is necessary to get another stone to bridge the gap? something like the Naniwa SS 3000 maybe? Thanks in advance. Cheers!

-Chad.

No, it's not necessary. You can go from 800 to 6000 without much trouble.

The only thing a tweener stone gives you is less time spent on the 6,000 removing the 800 scratches. I try to use as few stones as possible....switching stones is one of the trickiest part of sharpening.

Now you have me worried Im doing something wrong >< What makes switching between stones tricky? Ive always just raised a burr, removed said burr and moved on to the next stone, am I missing something?

Being a relatively new freehand sharpener I really overdid it when it came to buying stones and my usual sharpening sequence goes 1k - 2k- 4k- 6k- 8k- 16k on shapton glass then .5 and .25 micron spray on split leather. Is there something I need to be aware of and look out for when switching stones?

You just have to make sure that you're back onto the same bevel (same angle) for each stone.

For instance, you have to do it 8 times including both strops.

I have to do it (starting at the same grit) 3 times.....1k, Rika, 10k Superstone. I have 5 fewer times to mess up an angle when you get started. Once you're started and found that angle, it's no big deal. But, if by chance you start at too high an angle, you just destroyed your edge. Easier to do the more times you switch stones.

But, what works for me, works for me. Might not be best, or even work, for you.
