I'd like to add another stone to my line up. Thinking something in the 8000 to 10000 range?

What I have already:

DMT XXC plate
"Latte" 400
Shapton Pro 1000
Sigma Power Select II 1200
Gesshin 2000
Imanishi 4000
Gesshin 6000
Sigma Power Select II 13000

Trust me, I get that I don't really NEED another stone but hey..... :cool2:

Gesshin 8k. it has completely replaced my Kitayama, except with my Honyaki V2 gyuto, which likes the Kit a lot, for some reason.

OT: how do you find the sigma power select 1200 and 13000?

There is a company here in the US and Canada called Lee Valley. I got the 13000 from them. I got the 1200 from a seller on ebay, bluewayjapan. I had to ask him for it as he doesn't list it normally. It was a great transaction with both vendors. Very refreshing, I ordered the stones and they shipped them right out without any drama whatsoever. ;)

Sorry, 'by how do you find them?' I meant 'do you like them / what are they like'?

As far as an 8k stone goes, I have a naniwa ss that I don't love, and that's the only advice from experience I can give, sorry for the thread hijack.

Personally I would stop at the G6.
