    Finishing stone

    So for a long time i have been thinking to buy the kitayama 8k as a finishing stone for my yanagiba.

    But i was offered naniwa ss 10k for a very good price.

    i have bester 1200 and rika 5k

    Which one would you pick ?

    I have wanted a 10k Superstone for a while, it would be useful as a finisher, but also would give you a badass polish when you thin your knives

    If you haven't read what Dave wrote up one the Kitayama. It is a great read, it made me understand what it was really

    Kitayama., paired up with a Naniwa Snow White. The Naniwa first followed up with the Kit. usually only takes 2 or 3 minutes per stone.

    Yeah, but he wants to choose from the two he mentioned.

    I had 10K SS and have Kita at work. SS is very nice stone, imho much better than 8K SS, which I had too. Leaves better edge and finish, feeling is also better. Have to use nagura on.
    You can get it cheap? go for it

    I don't have the 10k SS but I am not a fan of the Kitayama, in general other than it's pretty fast for a finisher.

    I kind of love Kitayama, from the start i was not impressed but it grew on me a lot. Now i use that stone for razors and Kamisoris all the time.
    BTW Iwasaki use it as bevel setter on his Kamisoris hehe
