    they arrived. sigma is really really coarse, cerax looks pretty smooth. stu says the cerax is thirsty and likes light pressure vs sigma is not so thirsty and likes lots of pressure, both only need a quick soak.

    The Shapton Pro 320 resists dishing very well. I like it a lot, and it feels a lot better to use than a diamond stone, that's for sure.

    Sure. I mostly flatten my stones against each other, these days.

    i have a shap320, while it doesn't dish fast, it also doesn't cut very fast either. i had on loan a jns 300 which had nice feedback and dish resistant, but also not aggressive enough. i'm thinking it really does need to be soft to cut fast and dishing is the price you gotta pay.

    It's certainly not a super fast stone, for sure. It's a lot easier to remove steel than put it back, though, so the stone being a little slow is fine by me, most of the time.
