    Perhaps some of the ceramic binder from the Bester (Beston) has clogged it?
    You might try cleaning it with a green scrubbie under running water.

    It might be clogged with mud from the 500? Not sure, but that would be my guess. I think you'll have results using a diamond plate to flatten.

    I use a JNS 1K and it cuts like crazy when freshly lapped, but does collect a little swarf along the way, although never so much that it stops cutting effectively. I usually give it a little rub down with a diamond plate between knives.

    Hopefully someone smarter than I will have a definitive answer for you.

    You flatten a stone with some other stone?

    I think the others are on to it. I use a diamond plate to lap mine and do not have any issues with it clogging up unless I am thinning my Farberware stainless POS knives.

    Maybe try flattening with sandpaper or something and see if it's still like that

    flattening stones against each other is a common and effective method that requires no additional equipment. it's what i do for quick clean up, when i don't feel like bringing out a diamond plate.
