Hi Robert,

Yes that's what I use on all my stones up to about 8K.

Awesome! I love to hear that. :)

On stones from about 1k on up you should use something finer to smooth the surface, the XXC will leave deep gouges that affect the feedback and IMO the results.

Mark, what would you use above the 8K point?

Jason, what finer "something" would you recommend?

Get a finer grit DMT plate, and you can also use your other stones to rub on other stones; aka rub your 8,000 with a 1,000 after using the DMT plate. This is getting nit-picking, but it actually does give you slightly better results I find.

600-800 grit sandpaper works well or a nagura stone.
