    Fast Cutting 2-3k stone and 5K Synthetic

    Need a fast cutting 2-3k stone to use after Bester 1200 and one in 5K range after. Have been out of synthetic stones for a while, so not sure what's what these days.

    Well for a 2k stone I use the Naniwa Aotoshi 2k Green Brick. It in my opinion and many others is that it is similar to an aoto in that it finish is much more I would say around 4k, and cuts like a 1k or so and it's rather fast and for the price like 45$ (When they are in, they go fast) along with the size which is two full bricks. That's my recommendation hope this helps.

    I am still digging my rika 5k. I find it cuts pretty fast and leaves a nice finish for that range. its not a 5k finish but cuts nicely. I rarely do below that stone these days.

    Jon's gessin will replace your bester because it cuts just as fast if not faster and leaves a 2K+ finish

    That's what I was gonna say. I've only used the Bester a tiny bit, but that's what it seemed like to me when I compared them. I don't even use much pressure on the 2k and it cuts really quickly.

    The Gesshin 400-2k-4k series is the nicest soaker series I've tried. I easily prefer them over the Choseras and the tried and true Bester-Rika combo.

    That's my razor progression, too. I use 8 to 12kSS and Gesshin20k.
