    4-6k stone recommendation

    Hi everyone, what do you all recommend for a 4-6k stone? Something relatively hard that cuts fast and gives a nice mirror finish?

    Dave Martell's JKS 4K. Splash and go, reasonably fast cutter, smoother feel than the Rika. Or, a Gesshin 4K from Jon Broida at JKI, but it's over twice the price.

    Gesshin 5k is splash and go and gives a very nice finish...is not cost prohibitive either.

    I use Naniwa 5k superstone. Feels like butter, and gives a superb polish.

    Chosera 5K is my favorite 5K. But for the best bang for the buck, it's the Suehiro Rika.

    Sigma Power Ceramic is a brand with a good cutting power for all steels incl alloys, excellent price, great life, and supple awesome feel. silky death for steel. Comes w a wood base too if you prefer! Sigma Power 6k My natural stone from japan woodworker is probably faster-cutting but dishes more quickly and 3x the price.. but it's an awase-to grade 5
