    I like the 4k. It's no where near as muddy as the rika but the feedback is great. I was lucky to try it at Jons. I plan on using it to replace my rika.

    I still love my shapton pro 2k. Probably the best feeling stone in their lineup.

    If you have a fast cutting synthetic 5k, I'm not sure a 2k is really going to do anything but add another step. Just my $0.02.

    My favorite stone right now is a medium-hard #6K-rated stone by Sigma Power called the Jinzo Renge Suita. The abrasives are irregularly set into the matrix to mimic the irregular finish of a natural stone. It's now my finishing stone because of the refined but aggressive edge but it also cuts quite fast.

    You have a point but it really depends on how much time you want to spend at each step and what you want your "base" edge to look like. If you want your base edge to be 4k-ish with no coarser scratches, it takes a realtively long time to do that going straight to a 5k. I don't really consider the Rika a fast 5k but more like an average 3k so that also works well.

    tim0mit: call, pm or email Jon.

    oops. sorry. Jon was too quick.

    I'd also suggest that it's fast enough to go straight there from a #1/1.2K stone. It leaves a hazy finish (definitely not mirror).

    That is interesting! I bet is saves them money on manufacture too.

    Where is that stone acquired?
