    Agree! That's what i told- they should be more efficient( quicker), we can take our time to achieve the best.
    They forge the knife- we finish and sharpen it. If you have to sharpen 30 knives a day, you'll change for synthetics. Speed-result will be more important then the fine result. But for yourself .... Taking your time .... We use the expression- " sharpness OOTB"- sometimes it' even good- but normally you can do it sharper.
    And i do even a coarse work on Jnats- it' s quick as well. Yeh- Shapton proff Glass Stone is quicker, diamonds even more, but you don't loose so much materials with Jnats!

    And this is great! Important: we do it with own hands, not machines, using our skills.

    It is actually the best way to hone said skills, I am still a complete beginner, but I am enjoying it
    Edit: at least for amateurs like me

    I am definitely enjoying it!
    My first natural stone was a hakka. After I tried it I was hooked
    I am now trying out coarser stones as well such as the binsui and enjoying it very much
    There is so much to try out
