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.
-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.
