Lost stone/replacement stone conundrum. I decided to replace my lost Shun 1k/6k with a Shapton Pro 1k. Look. Out of stock. Wait. Wait. Resist Amazon.com. Wait. Decide that the Shapton Glass cannot be that different. Purchase Shapton Glass on Sunday 4/21. Wednesday 4/24:Ding. You have mail. Shapton Pro 1k back in stock. Ugh.
Question: Is there enough difference between the Glass and Pro to justify contacting CKTG, asking for a refund, returning and waiting? Or are they pretty much the same? Take into account my sharpening ability (beginner; been sharpening Fujiwara FKH for about a year on lost Shun 1k/6k stone. I really want to limit myself to one 1k stone in order to focus on my ability not my toy catalog).
Thanks in advance for your time and opinions.
