The Imanishi is a soaker. You can get the Shapton Pro 320 for just $2 more and is splash-n-go and a is a very good stone. The Shaptone Glass is a very good stone in that range for the same price as the Imanishi.

I've already got the dmt duo plate with 600 on one side and 1200 grit on the other. So if it need to go to a coarser grit for any reason I could use that. The green brick was my first stone and it's really nice to use compared to the Dmt. The shapton 1500 is too close to the green brick I think. It would make sense to me to get a 4, 5 or 6k to round out my grits.

And I have stroping compounds in 3, 1.5, 1, 0.5, and 0.25 micron.

Jeff is right. It requires a soak of about 10 minutes. The shaptons are splash and go even at the lower grits which is kind of unusual.

How do these compare to a shapton gs1k in terms of hardness, cutting speed, slurry generation, etc?

My Shapton 1.5k showed up today and I put it to work immediately slightly thinning and sharpening a Henckels I picked up from a coworker.

My initial reaction is very favorable. The stone gave me fantastic feedback, cut extremely quickly, and was joyfully quick to work with. I was moving a lot of steel and it did stick a bit, but the stone only needed a quick rinse to clean for further use. I'm going to play with it a bit more in the next few days, but I'm thinking I need some of this stone's siblings in my closet.

My heart cannot wait to get to 100 but my wallet says slow down on the posts dude. Good thing I stopped paying attention to that lousy wallet.

Perhaps Mark could "weight" the value of the posts... Two points for every data-rich-dense-with-stunning information post and 1/2 point for every dumb question post. Wait--it would take me twice as long!

This is not a forum exclusive but I thought I would draw your attention to this deal I'm doing. Basically I ordered way too many of these Fujiwara 270mm Stainless gyutos so I figured I would slash and burn them: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/fufkmgy27.html
