I am comparatively new to nice knives and freehand sharpening. My first set of stones was a Norton combo starter set.
The finer stone being 4000/8000. I just bought an Imanishi 10,000 here. To finish my knives. I was curious what a 10,000 grit would do to the edge (answer make it much sharper :twisted: ). Anyway, the Imanishi 10000 feels coarser and seems to cut faster than the Norton 8000. I'm curious if anyone could offer any insights on consistency of stone grit and cutting feel.

They are all different in feel, wear rate, mud production, finish, and grit. Many stones labeled as the same grit are often nothing alike.

As I like to say, stones are as individual as you and I.

Very well put.

I like the feel of the Imanishi stone. Does anyone have anything objective to say about the Norton stones, keeping in mind they are entry level...
