Just a silly question and verifying what I know.

Please verify my assumptions.
1. EP stock stones are splash go.
2. Shapton glass stones are splash and go.

Please answer my questions.
3. Is the Nubatama Bamboo 150 a splash and go?
4. I know it is technically not a stone but is the Atoma 140 a splash and go?

Thanks

El

Shapton and Atoma splash and go
ep need to soak.(I soaked mine before they wore out and were replaced with Shapton)
Nubatama ?
I put my Shapton stones (for ep and the full size glass stones) in water before I sharpen. It is easy, hurts nothing and might help a little. I think soaking the shapton glass stones for edge pro is a good idea because the stones are upside down and cannot form a pool of water for the knife edge to swim in. I also spuirt water on the EP glass stones often while sharpening..
But that is just me, using my meager I.Q. and flawed reasoning skills to make it up as I go along.

EMADURO <> I'd listen to KEN123, and soak your 150 for 5 minutes.

You do not need to soak the EP stock stones, I used to but not anymore, just a little water on the surface is all that is required.
