Just acquired the stone and in my op which I don't know if it counts for much, I think it is the best 6k on the market today and well worth the money and i believe it's still cheaper than a 5k shapton and I love my shaptons at least most of them except for the 120gs just wasn't my mug of beer. The edge was shiny and left a very fine tooth, I tried it on cpm154, aeb-l and m390 and was not disappointed at all, with proper hydration and lite slurry it is in my kind the ultimate 6k and I commend mark and ken for bringing these to market, I had very little load up just swarf and it cleaned up nice with that small dmt mark sells for around 12 bucks. Before you consider a shapton and there's nothing wrong with those I still love and use mine, consider one of these I believe you will be pleasently surprised. Peace and prosperity to all, jmbullman

Interesting I opted for the 5k over the 6k since the 5k is a tad softer and works very well with a slurry. Hmmm maybe I should test the 6k soon.

I would its I little harder but not so hard that it doesn't build up a slurry and cuts well with just plain water on the stone more of a final polish if u want but I prefer it rite off a lite slurry, it give it a fine tooth and good shine. Like I said unless the knife requires a higher grit I am stopping here it does a great job. Like I said just my op it doesn't count for to much, I like different than most anyway. Peace jmbullman

I was just thinking of a 6k stone actually. I have 1, 2, 3, 4, and 8k so instead of going to a 5k I am going to pick up a 6k.

(Although, I really should have the 5k too of course, one does need all of these stones after all)

Thank you for the review, I would say that your opinion does indeed count for quite a bit here, it holds a lot of weight.

I am glad you like it and thanks for the complement. With the shaptons and choseras going sky high the nubatama line is going to be in my mind a great substitute if not upgrade just for cost purposes alone not to mention I think for the ones I have use their a better stone for shear speed of use and its less need of flattening for the higher grits and most of the lower grits. I will be testing a new j-nat that hasn't hit the market yet probably tomorrow so i will withhold the name of the stone untill tested and by what I can feel just with my hand its going to be the best middle grit before a jump to a higher and might be considered a finisher for most of us. I will hopefully conduct the test tomorrow and do a video of its cutting abilities. Stay tuned my friends this could be the best middle j -nat yet as far as a finisher or jumper is concerned and price isn't bad either. Peace and prosperity to all. Jmbullman
