Introducing two new members of the Nubatama series of synthetic stones, both in the Ume group of stones - The Nubatama Ume 2000 Platinum stone and the 3000 grit Nubatama Ume Platinum stone. These stones are not as expensive as the 2000 and 3000 Nubatama Bamboo stones but more expensive than the two 2000 Ume stones already in the lineup - the 2k Speckled Ume and the 2k ume black brick, sometimes referred to as the 'olive brick of joy'. These are both considered premium quality stones and fill the need for a more affordable 3k stone and an additional 2k stone in the Ume series.

Ken,

How do theses stones wear and cut compared to the Shapton Glass variety?

The stones should be very similar to the Nubatama 1k Bamboo stone which compares favorably to the Chocera 1k. Reviewing the associated video of this stone should give you a good idea. It should also be a fast cutter for it's grit. Because it does generate some mud unlike the Shaptons which generate almost no mud, it should be a more aggressive cutter. And of course since it is MUCH more stone, it should last much longer. Also a hard stone that doesn't generate excessive mud so it should work well on plane blades / woodworking tools and double bevelled blades. For the more heavy handed who like a hard stone, even single bevels should work well with this stone. It will not be quite as hard as the 1k ume XXhard.
