Thread: Diamond Stone Set Initial Run Signup

  1. #41
    Hey guys... sorry to revive such an old thread, but i saw a comment about these the other day and thought it might be worth asking if people are interested in me doing another run of these? I've been thinking about adding them to the store on a more permenant basis, but i'm not sure about the demand.

    I also have some other diamond stones around the store (in stock and on order) that might be of interest.

    There is one that i mentioned a long time ago that is 800 grit, but as fast as my 400. However, it needs to be mounted to something and i dont have time to do that here, so it would be on the end user (and would also keep cost and shipping down significantly). The only problem is that after a lot of use, i realized these need a special nagura, which i dont have in stock right now, to work best. So, i am waiting on these to come in.

    The other type is one that i have on order... its a special formulation of a 300 grit diamond stone i've been working on for a while. Its much thicker than other diamond stones i've used previously, has pretty good tactile feedback, and cuts FAST. These kinds of stones are not the same as, say, and atoma, but while they dont cut as fast, they are faster than normal stones, leave more consistent finishes than atoma-like plates, last much longer, and leave less deep scratches. They also feel much more like a traditional stone.

    Anyways, back to the 1000+6000 set... anyone interested in another run? Let me know.

    -Jon

    *additional notes...
    -The 800 grit diamond stone runs about $400 per stone, and i dont know how much the nagura will cost me yet.
    -The 300 grit diamond stone will be somewhere between $400-600 depending on how things go with the manufacturing. I ordered a few, as i have some local friends who love this stone.

    Funny that you bring this up, 'cause since I visited back in Late April, I've been thinking about the diamond 1K+6K combo a lot. These stones are very appealing to me - I want to get into a 2-stone progression, splash-n-go, slow-to-no dishing, infrequent flattening, fast cutting, low maintenance, etc. I'm just balking at the price right now...

    Also very interested in one of the courser grit diamond stones.

    Question - does the 1K+6K combo come with a flattening device?
    Shibui - simplicity devoid of unnecessary elements

    I think this is a pretty rad deal.

    If you look at what people pay for other high end stones (natural or synthetic), or even knives, I definitely feel like you'd be getting your money's worth.

    It sounds like Shapton Glass Stones are the closest comparison. An equivalent set of those would cost you about half this - and it sounds like these diamond stones are much longer lasting, never need to be flattened, more durable, and quicker cutting. I'm interested in how the feel/feedback compares.

    It might be a silly question but what is the function of a nagura with these stones? Is it a synthetic grit to help with feedback/speed or is it to "clean" the stones themselves?

    The diamond stones do not come with a flattening device, and the 1k and 6k are such that by the time they really need to be flattened, you should be almost done with the stone. The nagura will help maintain flatness to some extent, and is very important for refreshing the surface from time to time.

    The 300, on the other hand, does have a flattening device, but flattening is tricky. Essentially, you need to flatten with a diamond flattener, but then the surface doesnt cut until you use a nagura and release the worn down diamonds and expose fresh ones.

    I think i just answered the nagura question in the last post. Let me know if that makes sense to you
