Thread: recommendation: ~1000k natural stone

    recommendation: ~1000k natural stone

    Looking for a med-coarse step before Aoto. Something that will clean up after flattening/thinning with a DMT and give a consistent scratch pattern.

    Thanks.

    How does the White Binsui compare with the King 800 for cutting?

    I have a JNS 1000 from Maksim and really like it. It does not dish much and does not need flattening very often.

    I like it. Super muddy. Raises a burr quickly. I go from it to a Hakka to strop. Just want something that will cleanup nicely after thinning or flattening. The King 800 leaves an ugly finish on the blade road IMHO.
