I know there are a lot of people that are interested in, or would like to try this stone. If you are one of these people... here is your chance. Lower 48 only please, and usual passaround rules apply. Insurance for $75 would also be appreciated.

i am a proud owner, just be careful it's so pleasant to use you might end up with just a handle, this thing can cut like a mother

+1. I said this to another member. It's a very silky feeling coarse stone. Almost feels like a 400 grit version of the rika. I've caught myself spending too much time on it just because I like how it feels.

Ok, Sorry that I've been dragging my feet a bit about getting this thing going. The list, and order so far is LOL, Dardeau, Jared08, Mrmnms, Brainsausage, Crothcipt, and Don. I tried to organize this by geographical location to keep shipping as low as possible. If I forgot anyone I apologize, and could you all please send me your addys so I can get it all printed out thanx =)

yes it did. i already set a couple of bevels. the stone raises burrs so quickly. and it really stands out on stainless knives IMO. doesnt dry out quickly unlike other low grit stones either. a real joy to use.

this stone is just awesome,i was leaning towards a gesshin splash and go 600, but this stone is just too impressive to pass up. its a deceptively fast cutting stone, i raised huge burrs on several different knives very quickly. i also thinned my kato alittle and i was very impressed with the results. i plan on shipping it out to whoever is next within the next few days. thanks again kfed.

Dardeau is next on the list if you haven't sent it out already. I tried getting in touch a while back to get his/her address but haven't heard back yet.

No worries, If you would still like to share you thoughts on the stone in this thread feel free =). Next on the list is Jared08 if it hasn't gone out already.

I like it so far, I've not had the time to do a lot. Most of my work knives are at home awaiting attention right now, the situation is about to get critical. The 400 is about to get a workout though. I knocked my deba into the ice well of my fish table while rassling a 47 pound lemonfish into position and it hit the stainless and chipped pretty nastily at the tip. I'll post up a review after I put the fix on it

Sorry, I still got it. The engine in my truck is shot, so I've been having transportation issues....I'll get it in the mail in the next 2 days.

No worries. There aren't a ton of ya on the pass around list so no hurry.

Dardeau, Oh man, I'm feeling your pain. Especially when you have such a prize fish to butcher. Talk about a case of blue b_ _ _.

Used it along side a Beston 500 and diamond plate. Didn't need as much soak time to be effective. Felt much smoother, although it worked as quickly. The Beston feels unrefined by comparison. The Geshin 400 felt easier to control if that makes any sense. A big improvement for just a few more dollars. Just waiting for shipping info. Thank you once again K-Fed. I hope to return the favor at some point.

You're more than welcome. I believe brainsausage, or crothcipt are next on the list whenever you're ready to pass it on. =)

Just received it yesterday, haven't had a chance to put it to work yet. Although I have been snacking on the delicious homemade toffee that Mike sent along with it:hungry: Best passaround ever!

The bags were sitting right next to the stone before shipping. Needed something to pack with it :D

Crap, I'm really sorry that this hasn't been sent forward yet. The last couple months have been murder schedule wise. I'm in to work before the post office is open, and out loooong after it closes, and completely burn out and brain dead come Monday when I've had a day off. I honestly hadn't realized how long it'd been till I looked back here to see who was next on the list. Apologies to everyone ahead of me(and to K-Fed, as I'm sure you want this back at some point...). I'll have this out as soon as I hear back from crothcipt.

Is there a way to still get in on this? Have a few that could use some work and wouldn't mind trying before buying.

Got here last week some time (didn't go to the mail box until after the snow quit). Will give it a go sometime this week, and hopefully off by the weekend.
