    Me too. Tried to reason myself for not buying more stones. But I came out with none, due to the discount.

    Thanks Maksim for emptying my pocket.

    You're lucky if it's only your pocket that's been emptied.

    Oh boy... Apparently I just scratch the surface. I hope I won't get into the more troubles.

    I believe I'm not the only jnat noob here… would super cool if there were some recommendations or article in your WIKI about stone progressions. Something like this:
    for your beautiful single bevel knives you can start on stone A, then went to stone B or C and finish with Stone D and Nagura A/B/C.
    double bevel carbon knives are better sharpened with Stone B and Stone D.
    So even complete noobs could understand where to start.

    Cause right now there are some questions that bother me:
    have no idea what's the difference between WHITE BINSUI and Ikarashi
    why some OHIRA stones costs more then all my knives combined. What are they good for?
    what's the difference between Takashima and Hakka?

    …sorry for offtopic and congratulations to everyone, who was lucky with that sale

    Good to know about the ikarashi. I almost got one but went with the black saeki instead.

    I like my Ikarashi (haven't tried a binsui, so can't compare).

    However, especially as it's a coarse stone, I find it's too small. Is there any chance you'll stock bigger Ikarashi in the future, Maxim?

    Best way to have some fun is to buy them all

    But then you have too many stones and not enough time to try them. I think I like my binsui a little more than my ikarashi because it cuts faster. Ikarashi feels better though... but on the rough grits I want to finish fast and move onto the next stone.
