I'm burning through a Naniwa 400 but using that as a primary thinning and bevel setting stone I'm not surprised. My Shaptons have had a good two years of use with only the 1k showing signs of being worn down.

Got 3-4 years of home use on an 800 and 1200 King Ice Bear, maybe 10% used.

Home cook:

14 months on Shapton 1k and 4k glass stones. Sharpen about once every other month.

No real wear so far. Flattened twice.

I am on my 4th Shapton Glass 500 in 2 years
My Atoma 140 lasted 1 year but was very heavily used with both flattening and sharpening
My 400 Chosera and 400 Latte lasted less than a year

My 1k Chosera and all higher stones, well they seem like they will last an eternity.

Now keep in mind that I have sharpening business, otherwise I know I would not have worn any of these out yet.

I use a different knife most nights to use them all so I rarely have to sharpen, just touch up. My stones will last for decades at this rate.
