    Update:

    Thanks to Jon's incredible kindness, I have been able to use his 150 grit lapping plate to get the stone lapped.

    I estimate that approximately the top 0.5mm of stone had to be removed before the...

    I wish I could plop down an extra $80 for a chosera. The reality is that I just don't sharpen enough razors/knives to justify the expense.

    You, sir, are a true gentlemen.

    What do you think would be the faster route to the finish line?

    I use 150 grit drywall screen. Normally, it works just fine (except not this time).

    With this stone, I can barely get the drywall screen to remove material.

    Thank you, John.

    I am aware of the fact that the Bester is vitrified and was wondering whether that may have something do with it.

    Bester 1,200: Performance Issues.
