Hi Mark,
I need a sharpening stone recommendation. I have the King 1k/6k and the Naniwa Aotoshi 2k right now, and a bovine strop. I sharpen kitchen knives only, and none of mine ever need significant repair. What would you recommend for me?
Please let me know.
Thank you,
Jerry

Hi Jerry,

I would recommend a low grit stone for you to add.

The Latte 400 would be a good choice: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/la400grst.html

The Imanishi 400 is excellent as well. I've been using this one a lot lately and I like it: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/ri400grwast.html

Ummm... not sure what else to suggest. As far as grits are concerned you have your bases for a kitchen knife pretty well covered. Maybe a flattening plate and a 240-300 grit, but other than that it looks like you're golden.

What are you looking to do? Is the 1 to 6k progression not getting the edge you want? If not, what kind of edge would you like to achieve? What kind or brand of kitchen knives are you sharpening?

If you are sharpening any kind of quality steel kitchen knives you should be able to get near molecule splitting edges with just the combo stone and strop alone. ;)


Edit: And Mark beat me with a low grit recommendation as well. :P

You will need to thin or reset a bevel sooner or later and you never know when an accident might happen and you need to do a repair.
Get a low grit stone. A Shapton 320 of your flavor works excellent.

Jeff B...yes maybe, maybe not. I mean if the knives aren't in a heavy use commercial kitchen then doing any significant repair is probably not needed.

Maybe you should buy a stropping kit with some of Kens miracle spray...Stropping on such fine grits would probably give you some happy giggles.
