 Post subject: Chosera 400 or 600?

concerning the chosera stones, i see there are two kits at CKTG that have the chosera 600. a 3 piece set with the 600, 1k, 5k. there is also the 4 piece set with the 600, 1k, 2k, 5k. i have done some reading on the forum and some seem to think a 3k and a 5k is redundant, and that the 3k gives better feedback. i am also wondering if the 600 will be a low enough grit for reprofiling or repairs.

however, i would also like to take advantage of the savings offered by a kit. so, i am sort of leaning toward the purchase of a chosera 400, 1k, and 3k. i could get an arashiyami 6k later on. or i could go for the chosera 4 piece set of 600, 1k, 2k, 5k.

my basic question: will the 600 do the same thing as a 400, only take a little longer. has anyone here used both the 400 and 600? which do you like better and why, and which gives better feedback?

thank you for any input toward a purchasing decision.

The 400 is more popular. I'm using the 600 stone at home now and it's pretty similar. As you would expect it's slower cutting and finishes better. If you were doing a 2pc set the 600/3K would make an excellent refined, toothy edge that would be very nice for kitchen knives. The way I've been using it at home is following this one with a 2k bester and then a few light strokes with a 10K chosera before stropping at very lightly. I tend to mix and match stones just to try them so there is no particular reason why I chose these.

Personally I think the 600 and 2000 make very capable 2 stone combo. The 400 is better in a set of stones IMO, it has better cutting speed and it is the low grit stone of the Chosera line. The 400 is also much less muddy.
