Howdy,

After finally solving my low grit stone problem (400 Chosera) I am now looking for a 1K stone. Having read all the reviews, etc, I would like to buy th Nubatama Ume 1K speckled stone, but alas it is out of stock. Any idea when it is coming back?

thanks,
Danny

If you have a Chosera 400 then you should add a Chosera 800 and 3000.

It's never a good idea to mix and match from different stone lines unless you own them all.

Agree with Jason. I have those three stone and they make a great progression.

Actually the 400 Chocera will work well inbetween the 150 Bamboo and the 1k speckled Ume stone. I do have these in stock - in the medium hardness as well as two harder versions, hard and extra hard, so you can contact me directly as the speckled Ume stone may be out for a while at CKTG, traveling by ocean at the moment :)

Another alternative is to get the combo Nubatama stone , a 150 / 1200 stone. This too is a good general purpose setup with the 400 nestled inbetween these two grits, giving a nice transition even for more abrasion resistant steels. This 1200 is not like the Bamboo 1200 (a softer stone) but a good general purpose stone, similar in style to the 1500 Ume stone.

I don’t see what’s wrong with mixing things up, just so long as the stones are of good quality they should play well together. Although I do like to keep the progression within the same line

If your heart is set on the Nuba 1k Speckled, contact Ken. I shot Mark the same question about a month ago. His ‘wild guess’ was 3-6 months.

Just the typical time it takes to ship by boat vs air. It is already in transit so probably 2 months. Again I have my own inventory of Nubatamas and have some inventory of all Nubatamas at the moment.
