    yeah.. remember that if this goes well and people are happy with what i am selling, i plan on adding this full time to the site, so no one will have to wait. Really sorry for those who missed out on this.

    As a side note, i was surprised at how fast this went. I'm always nervous about offering expensive options like this, as i'm not sure others will see the same value in this that i do. I am always testing things like this though, and even sometimes bring in some of these options in small batches for customers and fellow sharpeners. For example, i have an 800 girt diamond stone in right now that soaks like a regular stone, cuts crazy fast (faster than the 1k in this by a decent bit), and is followed up nicely by the gesshin 6k. The downsides are that it is $400 for a 3mm thick plate of this, which will then need to be mounted to something.

    If these is interest in the projects like this that i often do, let me know, and i am happy to make them more publicly available. Its not that i'm trying to hide things... i just feel like most people wouldnt have the same interest in these kinds of products. Thats the main reason why this came up... it was the first time i could offer something like this at a price that wouldnt blow everyone's minds. I've spent way more than this on a single synthetic stone before (and i know people spend this on naturals, but in my mind, its a different game).

    It's pretty crazy that there's a market for these type of products in Japan at all. Can I assume that there's a ton of expensive stones that are not necessarily aimed at the cutlery market such as tools and such?

    At this point, I think you might as well start selling sharpening wheels, LOL.

    there are quite a few things aimed at professionals that arent in high production... also, you'd be surprised by what high end pro chefs will spend on their tools and things to care for them

    Busy week, finished up with a double yesterday and didn't keep a close eye on the board. Missed this one, but I'm very interested. Jon, please keep us posted on future runs or if you add them to the regular stock list.

    pretty sure these arrived today... gonna check the boxes tomorrow and notify everyone

    as a side note, there was some talk in these diamond stone threads about other super high end products like these, so i thought i'd let you guys know that i'm testing more stuff like this... just got some new "toys" tonight and gonna start testing tomorrow. If i like them, they will end up being a bit more expensive than the stones in this run, but they have potential to fill a much needed gap for serious sharpeners on the low end of the grit spectrum. So, you guys asked to know when i do things like this, and now you know. Testing begins tomorrow
