When I get it, I'll take a few pictures at 400x

That said, I just bought a 320, 1000, 2000 Shapton pro and a Nubatama 5k.

When available, i'll test it :-)

Hi Michiel,

I am temporarily out of the 2K. I should have more in about 10 days. Did you want to wait or substitute something else?

Sorry about that. I didn't check before you placed the order.

Alright, speaking of stone advice, I thought I'd throw a question out there. I'm considering a workhorse low grit for the collection, and so far I've narrowed it down to: Nubatama Bamboo 150, Atoma 140, and the Shapton Glass 120. Basically I'm looking for something that's going to be a fast bevel setter, eliminating the occasional small chips in the primary edge, thinning down the secondary edge and perhaps a decent flattening stone for my 400 and 1K stones. I'm leaning towards the Atoma 140 only because of its obvious advantage as a flattening plate as well, but the Nubatama Bamboo seems like a great stone after watching Ken's videos. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks to Jason B. as well for his insight regarding lower grit stones.

Well I'd get that Atoma 140 in there first, as you say, for the double duty of being a stone flattener. Then the 150 bamboo to follow. Even though they are about the same grit, there is a marked difference in scratch pattern between the two. The 150 cleans up the Atoma 140 scratch pattern very efficiently.

Check out the two videos where I clean up the Atoma 140 scratch pattern with the Bamboo 150. These videos are linked on CKTG when you look at the 150 Bamboo stone.
