Ive been using a 4k shapton GS stone and am really starting to not like it the more the put steel on it. Looking to replace it with a similar grit to fit between a 1k GS and 8k kitayama. Something not as hard, better feedback, and will generate some slurry to work with. Any recommendations??
thanks
Jared

The Gesshin 4000 (http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/gesshin-1/gesshin-toishi/gesshin-4000-grit-stone.html) immediately comes to mind, or the JKS 3000 (http://www.japaneseknifesharpeningstore.com/JKS-3000-4000x-3-4k-sharpening-stone-p/jks3k.htm). Suehiro Rika 5000 (http://www.japaneseknifesharpeningstore.com/Suehiro-Rika-5000x-5k-sharpening-stone-p/suerika5k.htm) if you're on a budget.

I have a lightly used gesshin 4k I can give you a good deal on if you are interested.

I can also part with my lightly used rika if you are interested.

If Jared doesn't take the Gesshin 4k, I will.

Did I get leapfrogged in the gesshin line???

No worries, I generally don't like soakers anyway, but there's such a buzz about the g4K that I though I'd give it a shot.
