The Gesshin 2K stone is really nice also. Its at least twice as fast a the King 1K and puts finish higher than a normal 2K. I love it.

Old thread bump but I just ordered one for $83 plus $15 shipping. More money than any stone or kitchen knife I've bought. We'll see how well it works
ordered one what? I have the synthetic blue aoto and I love it, I can usually do one 2-4 knives a session on other stones if they need them, but I could sharpen on this one all day.
That seems a bit high... I remember grabbing mine for like $45...

I'm in Canada.... I know **** sells for about 50. I believe JWW is 83 though. Up here there's a huge markup on stones and knives but with the gouging international shipping from American vendors it works out to the same
I may have written that wrongly as it wasn't meant to put down the vendors. Shipping is ridiculous between our countries. I've bought things from overseas which were larger and heavier for much less money. A thin nakiri for $30 I think is a bit of gouging though. Look at eBay. Two different sellers selling the same thing. One charges $25 for shipping the other charges $5. And Koki from JCK charges $6-7 I believe for shipping as a flat rate. Makes you wonder. But I don't ship things so I really have no idea
