    Assessment to follow after weekend. Standard hardness King Hyper 1000:



    Very generously discounted by Metalmaster for tiny defect that I'm not even going to bother lapping out for now.

    Benny I'm really confused why they would list it as soft, it is definitely a hard stone. I would have dismissed it otherwise as I don't care for soft ones.

    Been so busy haven't even done touchups, just getting by using mac black on misono carbon lol. I'll report for sure when I give it serious use. Still gotta compare with chosera 800 as well.

    Since its Dictum.. they "invent" the weirdest stuff..
    Double bevel nakiris are called usuba.
    Amakusa jnats are just calle "aka"(its like i call a red ferrari just "red"..like "i drive with my red")

    So thats Dictum magic! And no need to be confused.

    This thing is like a turkey singing Megadeth...



    ... It gobbles metal.










    And I may have found a solution to that pesky Tanaka ginsanko cladding problem

    I will be very interested to read this. Tried finding this stone in Metalmaster's store but no go? I was shocked at how much of a difference the AI#1000 from Watanabe made and am actually working up more than a mild interest in synthetics...

    After looking at Matsunaga's webpage(Japanese section and not English), it seems the way of identifying the soft version from the standard Hyper is by the number of kanji below the 1000 stamp and the line on the stones themselves. The soft version will have seven symbols and the standard version will have four.
    So before buying one I would check out a picture of the stone itself rather than the box.

    Have you considered the Shapton Pro 1000x?
