    Stones, one side thicker then another

    I've notices that most of my stones that I use a lot are thicker on one side compared to another. Forming a slope. I guess I did not rotate them enough.
    Even tho the surface of the stone is flat, I am kinda concerned that one side dishes faster then another. Is this something I should be worried about? Will this affect sharpening? Should I just rotate the stones 180degree so make other side dish faster until it evens?

    That would be my approach. I do not see why having a slope should be a problem.

    I asked a similar question and got (as usual) good advice.

    My take away was not to worry about the slope. Rotate the stone. Use the pencil. And I mark one side of stone as bottom and don't use that side so flattening can be done relative to a flat bottom surface.

    Hope this helps.
