    King stone info

    I've seen at least a few different models of King stones floating aorund - Deluxe, Ice Bear, Hyper, plain 'ole King brand - but I can't find any info anywhere on what's what.

    Does anyone have any info on the different stones King sells?

    I don't even have any King stones myself, but when people ask me for a recomendation, it's usually what I tell people to start with. I figure since I'm slinging their name around, I should at least have them myself. I'm just not sure which ones to get. Cheers! mpp

    FYI - IceBear is a rebranding name that's also found on Kitayama and other make stones brought into the US by an importer.

    from the descriptions on the hyper, they're less likely to dish and more aggressive cutters.

    Thnx.

    What about Ice Bear vs Deluxe - are they same type of stones or different? Splash-n-go or soaker? Fast or slow cutting? Fast or slow dishing?

    IceBear is just an importer name that they slap on stones. This name isn't a King type of stone whereas Deluxe is.

    Thanks Dave, that makes sense. But what are the IceBear stones like compared to the Deluxe stones? Are they the same stones with different names, or different stones all together?
