    Was about to pull the trigger tonight, but alas the Gesshin 6000 is out of stock.

    Maybe I should get a 6000 Shapton glass as a work stone, then the Awasedo as a finisher I leave at home.

    No it wasn't mounted to a base, there have been a few times I've left it soaking for a day or so out of lazyness. Maybe 4-5 times max over the course of 3 yrs. Maybe that did it over time?

    I def...
  3. another stone cracked....this time arashiyama 6000

    Not sure why I'm having such bad luck w/ stones cracking...........first the synthetic aoto, now this.

    Perhaps this stone hasn't been babied as much, it gets left at work. It's stored on a half...

    leather strop or 6000 grit stone.

    If I'm juiced and there're no recourse, a mac unbreakable ceramic rod. I feel guilty busting a cowboy move like that so I rarely do it.

    don't feel bad, the tip is where most people have problems when sharpening.

    Like others said, once you get it you get it. It'll be a eureka moment, just keep practicing.

    I got mine in the mail, Canada customs killed me, charged me $62. Probably should've shipped it to the States to dodge that bullet.

    I got a saya to go with it, he charged ¥2730 for it (240).

    I own the revised mac unbreakable.

    it's ok, I only got it because my chef harped on me for not having a honing rod. I much prefer using a strop or just touching up on a high grit stone. The rod is...
