    Ohishi combo stone

    So I was the local knife shop and they had this 1k/6k combo stone for $54 bucks. It's a soaker and I must say it is a decent stone. I already sharpened 3 knives on it and it cut and polished the steel very nicely.

    Has anyone ever owned or used one of these stones ?

    I used one last year for a while till I dropped it and it shattered. It was an okay stone. I found it to dish like crazy, and cut a little slow, the 1k side a least. The 6k side was nice, left a nice polish. I used it mostly for the 6k side when I did have it. If it leaves an edge you like, then its a good stone for you

    The splash and go 1k. It may be that I'm used to a faster cutting stone.

    no... that makes sense... that one was on par speed wise with the bester 1200... anyways, thats why we just replaced it with the 1200.

    Sorry to derail... i was just curious.
