    Sounds awsome, but I personally would prefer to buy them a la carte rather than having to buy them together... For me, would really love to have the lower grit stone, but will likely have little use for the higher grit one. I like your Aoto too much.

    Now that you've described it more, I remember you showing me one a while back, and telling a bit about it and how expensive it was...

    Since I recently purchased my new Gesshin stone line-up, it's kinda hard to think about spending another $300+ on stones that would be redundant in some ways. That's almost another knife... well maybe half-way to another knife... Not to say that I'm not interested - I love the new things you come out with, and if you're serious about bringing these to market, then they've got to be good.

    Just thinking out loud, I can see these being very useful for people who work in a pro environment and have to bring their kit with them. I've often said that the Shapton GS are a good consideration for someone in this situation because they are splash-n-go, cut really quickly, don't need to be dried, and are thin and light therefore easy to carry. But they have down sides - the aesthetic finish isn't great, they are very hard, and not consistent from grit to grit where some of them glaze over. The only down side I see to your new diamond stones for this situation is they may be heavy. Since they wear so slowly, maybe make a thinner version for traveling?

    btw - when these do need flattening, how do you do it? With another diamond plate, or will these eat through it?

    Sounds really cool, but WELL beyond my means. Hell, I haven't even spent that much on a knife lol. Still seems like an amazing stone

    I'm interested but I would have more use for an even coarser one instead of the fine one.

    Sounds intriguing. I really liked the edge I got from an extra-extra fine DMT plate, but not the deep scratching and rough looking finish. I would probably give these a shot based on Jon's enthusiasm and endorsement.

    Does the diamond leave relatively more bite than a regular synthetic of the same grit? 6K is beyond where I usually like to go, any chance of something slightly coarser, say 4K? Or does this stone leave an edge that still feels nicely aggressive?

    I take it that this is not my beginner's setup? Or any beginner?

    Jon, since I have JUST got a 3 stone Gesshin setup I would not be able to order too soon for financial reasons, but YES - I would be very interested in a 2 stone (it could even be a combination stone - my actual preference) setup that would alow me to put a good edge on whatever dull knife I would get my hands on - so the medium grit should be "rough enough" so to speak. The main use for this stone combo would be sharpening knives of family mebers or friends when I am visiting them - so that I could keep my (mostly soaking) stones at home.

    I would be VERY interested on a pass-around and would gladly pay for the shipping to Europe to test such a stone setup.

    I'm guessing that these are not currently listed on the web site, so maybe you could post a short video hi-lighting the attributes of said stones. Also if these are to be a limited production run,
    how about an option for a Jumbo pair along the lines of the EX LG. 1K gesshin but with a much tougher matrix

    Sorry if I missed it, but do they cut at the same rate throughout their life and just get smaller like a regular synthetic stone? Or do they start to cut more slowly as they wear like a DMT plate?

    Would one of the special naguras come with the stones?

    Thank you.
