REAL MUDDY! :lol: In it's defense, as I love mine<--link, it starts off with a bit of grain, but REFINES dramatically. It's a finesse stone that leaves a very workable edge, and a much cleaner polish than you might expect out of a 1200. Plus, it's a brick; lotta stone for $75.

Ken, I owe you a review of the Ume 1k speckled XX-hard I got from you as well as the 2k Ume speckled I got from Mark. I have not contacted you yet because I am still ironing out my learning curve on a new stone. I will before long :)

Just an update - based on Ken's information above and that I wanted to try out the Nubatama 150, I got the Nubatama Bamboo 150/1200 combo stone: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/nubacost15.html. I'll be putting the 1200 side to use this evening on a few knives. I guess I'm too used to my Shaptons - this sucker is HEAVY :-).

Now to find a few knives that need enough work to test out the 150 side ;-).

I haven't tried any other stones but I have Choseras, 400, 1000, 5000. I think its a great combination. Each stone cuts fast, has great feedback and is very slow wearing. The jump from the 400 to 1000 is an easy jump, once you finish on the 1000 it doesn't take long on the 5000 to get a screaming edge. The 5000 leaves an edge that is polished and sharp and does it very quickly. It amazes me how creamy smooth it feels and how quickly it polishes the edge. If there are better stones out there, I can't imagine they are better by much. I use each as a splash and go stone which couldn't be any easier. I also use John's system with the hotel pan and the bridge he sells on his site. No more spray bottles and messy counter tops.


Dave.
