I took my new stone on a test drive yesterday and WOW that sucker was incredible. The swarthy mud it creates while no hint of loading absolutely was great!

Now my Shapton Glass 1K is going to be very lonely . . .

I was also surprised to find the edges already chamfered. I still flattened it including taking the edges off, but probably didn’t have to as it was already flat and edges were already treated.

I sharpened two Shun knives (VG-Max Steel) and some nice-but-German paring knife. Both Shun’s had chips and that stone not only quickly raised a burr, but it was also aggressive enough to get those chips out without using a coarser stone (if the steel was harder, I probably would have pulled out something coarser).

The polish was consistent and cloudy reminding me more of a natural stone instead of synthetic.

What else can I say except that this is a fantastic 1k stone!

Where did you get this? I've been waiting for them to come back in stock at CKTG. I definitely want one of these stones.

I know that Mark has a bunch on order but I do not know when he will get them. Ken Schwartz helped me out with mine but I don't know the inventory status with him either.

I will just have to be patient, I hope they come in soon. I'm waiting on that 1k and a bamboo 6k.

Thanks for the excellent review.

I do have a couple of these stones in stock. I have them in the Medium hardness - which Mark has - as well as in a hard and extra hard formulation. The hard formulation is similar in hardness to Shapton stones and the extra hard is granite like hard, similar to an Ozuku or Nakayama Asagi.

If someone needs one, send me a PM or email at ksskss@earthlink.net. I just have a couple.

This is simply an amazing stone. Best 1k stone I've ever tried.
