    There's so many people waiting for these I feel like I'm going have to be a JKI sniper to score one from this batch.

    I got both of these out of the first batch. They get a "must buy" rating for sure. I gave away most of my other stones after a few uses of these, I lost all desire to reach for anything else. They make life so easy I almost feel like I'm cheating. I guess the other side of that is that they do cut FAST, so I suppose you could also go real wrong real quick.

    As far as I'm concerned anything that can be messed up can be fixed just as easily. As long as you end up with a sharp edge other improvements will come with time and practice.

    Ok so I'm not even finished with my sharpening session and I just had to stop and post. Wow! The 400 Gesshin is simply amazing. Super fast cutter I mean really fast and the best feedback I've ever felt from a low grit stone. Dishing was fairly minimal as well. As you already know Jon this just may be the most perfect low grit stone on the market. I'm just blown away by the performance. I set my bevel so quickly and accurately it's ridiculous. Awesome product!

    sweet... glad you like it. I'm pretty happy with the series of stones we've brought in so far, but the 400, 2000, 4000, and now 8000 are some of my favorites... even when i consider all of the stones i've ever used.

    That's true to a point. Every fix, shortens that sweet spot in the life of your knife and every fix changes your geometry slightly. Regardless, these are definitely some great stones for kitchen knives.

    Sounds like Gesshin stones are the way to go!
