How would you compare the

Nubatama ume 320
Pink brick 220
And the bester 500 or
any other stone i this category you see fit

I want to get a solid stone to start a new edge. I have always used a naniwa 400 for this but wanted something a lil more budget friendly i can leave at work .I also wanted to see which will last the longest dishing wise/ and a fast cutting wise


Thanks mark!

For a low grit stone I really like one you didn't mention which is the Nubatama 150. I think it's still a good idea to have another low grit stone above it since a 1K or 2K has a bit of a hard time taking out the scratches.

I've used the Beston quite a bit and that is a good low grit stone that's fast but wears quickly (this is true with most low grit stones).


The pink brick is a good stone in the category and I think this is one you should cosider. It's fast,smooth and I like the scratch pattern this stone leaves. It needs a good soaking but after you saturate it the stone holds onto the water pretty well. I recommend you flatten this one and the beston quickly before each session. It's BIG too which I like. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/impibr.html

I haven't tried a "pink brick" with the Imanishi label....but I'm going to assume it's the same stone as the other pink bricks.

It does cut quickly.....but also dishes very fast.

I much prefer the Beston to it. I'm one of the few who does really like this stone.

Never tried the 320 Ume.....so of those you listed, I like the Beston best.
