Thanks very much for the reply. Those you mention always seem to head the list eh?
Very good point Matus. Maybe I should take a look at the sets JNS offers. What sort of grits would you recommend? A ~1000 and a ~5/6000???
The regular Atago is ok, but the Atago Kiita if from another league
Aiiwatani Kiita is just awesome- Maxim has managed to get some - i couldn't
Looks like a steel?
One general remark. In a home environment (i.e. taking care of knives in one household) a low grit stone will last 2+ years, medium grit 4+ years and
