So I just got in the 8k Snow White, wanting to confirm this is a splash n go. It performed very well like that. No one ever told me the utter convenience of splash and go stone! Its so much easier and quicker...looks like a shapton pro lineup will be in the works.

Also I received the Nakayama Koppa. A very nice finish on my knifes. It is a small stone, so it takes more time to work long blades but an outstanding finish. Cant wait until the razor goes to it.


*EDIT* I don't know why I didnt google it first...I found it can be a 5min soak or S&G. What works best for everyone here?

You can use it as a splash and go, but it performs MUCH better imo with a 10min soak. It's so nice and creamy, it's absolutely perfect.

Does this apply to the Shapton pros as well? I have heard that it makes a big difference from one source, and little to no difference from another..

The shapton pros and glass stones are splash and go. I like to soak the snow white at least 5 minutes before using it but I've done the drip method on my sink bridge and it works just fine right away doing this.

There's a difference on the Shaptons, but it's not noticeable on knives. On a razor the feedback is a tad nicer on some razors. The finish however, is exactly the same.

I notice the difference on my shaptons. They load a lot less and feel better with a spritz left on them for a few minutes. I just spray them when I start and by the time I get to them, the perform better.

The only stones I've liked best totally un-prepared is my Shapton Glass Stone and naturals.
