    not at all... i really enjoy answering questions, but the one thing i hate more than anything on these kinds of forums is when vendors push their products down peoples throats... i just dont want to be that guy. If you ask me questions, i'm always happy to answer them, but i wont be the first guy to jump up and say "buy my stuff". Also, if i feel uncomfortable with a conversation getting too business-like, i will take it to a PM. Anyways, thats where i'm coming from. I hope you guys understand.

    You always answer my questions, and that's why I tend to pm you if I have any. It's tough to separate business and "personal" and I find you and one other "vendor/maker" do a great job of balancing it!

    I do fine with an Arashiyama 6k as a polishing stone. You might wanna take a look at that.

    Sorry guys, I'm at the end of a busy night shift, so I'm writing nonsense.

    I'm going to be lucky enough to give a 6k-8k natural a try, so we'll see how that goes!

    I've had a synth aoto for a while now and like it. I can say with certainty that I have yet to be able to fully utilize the potential of the stone. Think of the mud it creates as a good thing though, because the particles will further refine it as you work the knife and you'll end up with a better finish. This is especially an advantage if you plan to stop after this stone. I also like it for polishing bevels with the intention of a kasumi finish. It ain't easy, but it's doable. Dave recommends the king 800/Aoto as a good started for the kasumi haze, or at least he used to.
