    naniwa chosera or naniwa ss

    a few days ago I wore out my cheap eden 240 grit stone from thinning and sharpening. now I need another coarse stone. I want a stone that does not dish too fast. I would like to stay under 50 dollar. i'm thinking of a naniwa chosera 400 or naniwa ss 400. how would you compare them or do you have other recommendations?
    (ps I would like to buy in europe to save on shipping costs.

    You can get a chosera 400 for under $50? Either way i wouldnt want to replace a stone you use for thinning with the chosera, its a great stone but not too effective for thinning.

    Atoma 140 diamond plate for major thinning and repair, gesshin 400 is a fast cutter has incredible feedback but dishes slightly and beston 500 doesn't cut as fast or feel as nice as the gesshin but dishes incredibly slowly.

    Gesshin 400 is way way way better than any other low grit stone ive ever used. And ive used around a dozen or so. Unfortunately it might be expensive for you to order one in Europe. Look into it though.

    Can you point me to such products? I'm currently also looking for ~400 grit stone, but Gesshin shipping would double its price

    I have not used it personally, but the 300 from JNS could also be a solution. The 800 is VERY nice.

    Which stone do you actually have in mind? I suppose you do not mean the Gesshin stones as these are custom made for JKI.

    I heard only good reviews about this stone, but can't justify the price. JNS 300 shipped from Denmark to my address is 120$. Compare this to Chosera 400 which would cost me 61$ shipped from Japan.
