I'm starting to suspect that getting many of these characteristics in a splash-and-go just isn't feasible.

    he was referring to the $400 super special 800grit diamond stone

    @ why feedback important in lower grit, because i detest sharpening that much and want it to suck as little as possible

    I would indeed suggest the Chosera 800. The Naniwa Pro is if possible denser and less dishing.

    Gesshin 1.2k splash and go is a very nice stone. Cuts fast, doesn't dish too much and feels good. Feels nice though not Chosera feel. I only sold mine when I shifted to naturals.

    I'd go with the Gesshin of what I've tried...of stones I've not tried, I think I'd go for a Shapton pro but mainly out if curiosity...I know someone so uses then for tools so I'll get you some eventual feedback.

    One other thought is more expensive and a soaker but I think the Gesshin 2k would make you smile the most...and it's fast.
    once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right

    Jck have a combo 400 /1200 so far the best medium grit I ever had, unfortunately it s a combo and need to be soaked.
    Agreed about the chosera 1k, that stone it s just to slow.
    Right now I am using a shampton glass 1 K and I enjoy using it s lot, but it's to slim.

    Just wondering people finding the 800 Chosera or Naniwa Pro particularly slow??

    I've been using a chosera 800 for a while now and have found no problem with the speed that it sharpens.

    What are you wondering about I wonder? It is a slow stone. It has other benefits like feedback and nice scratch pattern for grit. If it was marked ~1500 I would be happy with it.

    What about Chosera/Pro 400 then - it is pretty nice to sharpen on and finishes more like 6-800 grit..
    I used to go Chosera 400 --> Chosera 2K --> Superstone 5K and that worked just fine even though the SS is a pita tu use.
