    Introducing the Gesshin 1000/6000 Combo Stone

    The Gesshin™ 1000/6000 combo stone is the best combination stone I've ever used. Combo stones are often known for putting together mediocore quality stones, often in a smaller than normal size. When we decided to make this stone, we took two amazing full-size stones and put them together. The 1000 grit side of this is the same as our Gesshin™ Grit Extra Large Sharpening Stone. It is a great Nakato (middle stone). Like this rest of the Gesshin™ stones, I have been testing this one for quite some time now. This stone is a new addition to our lineup. As a soaking stone, it has great feedback, cuts fast, has great tactile feedback, and works well on a variety of steels. Its a medium hardness stone that can work up mud pretty easily. It also happens to be pretty dish resistant. The 6000 grit side is a very fast cutter, muddy, works well on all types of steel, and leaves a very nice finish.

    This stone is great for single bevel and double bevel knives alike... from normal sharpening to uraoshi, to koba (microbevels), to hamaguri edges this stone is a great all around stone. If you're looking for a one-stone setup, maybe even something to keep at work, this is your stone.

    This stone should be soaked for about 5-10 minutes before use. It can be used as a splash and go, but it really does much better with a short soak. It can be stored in water with no problems. If you do leave your stone in water, please change the water regularly. When drying out this stone or any others, do so out of the sunlight in a well-ventilated area.

    A high quality combo-stone is long overdue.

    Is the 6000 grit side thinner than the 1000 grit side?

    a little bit, but its still a full size finishing stone... the 1k side is just larger than normal... i promise some real pics soon. I had a few people try the stone in the store today and everyone loves it so far.

    That's a good thing. Most often the lower grit stones wears faster...

    I'm excited about this stone!

    for what its worth, the 1k side is about 28mm thick and the 6k side is about 22mm thick. Thats "full size", no?

    Jon can you tell us a bit more about the 6k side? It's not simply the Gesshin 6k splash and go slapped on the 1k.

    no... its something different. Its a fast cutting, creamy feeling stone with nice tactile feedback. It leaves a smooth well polished finish (not quite as bright at our 6k splash and go), but with nice contrast for jigane and hagane. Its a bit harder than the 1k side of the stone, but still soft feeling. I'll try to make a video or take some pictures of the mud and results soon.
