    I let them dry pretty well and just packed them as they came. As the boxes are now wrinkly they probably can't get any worse! This way they can still breathe a bit.

    I liked these stones pretty well. I didn't get to the 10,000 one, but the others had a nice feel and worked well on the O1 that put on them. I would seriously consider the 1000 when I need a replacement for the Norton that I have in that slot. Lately I have been going from the Norton 1000 or the fine DMT to an Ozuku that Maxim sent me, so I'm not in the market for any thing else. If I want to get really fine I use a Shobudani with Maxim's nagura, or one of the Chinese with nagura. Finishing with the Ozuku gives a nice edge, tho!

    These are Sigma Select II #1000, 3000, 6000 and 10000 stones.

    They will be available in 3-4 weeks.

    I am new to organizing a pass-around, so I will have read up on it and talk to people who have done it to figure out how to manage it best. There will be some conditions, so please stay tuned.

    Hi Marko, Is it still possible to get in on this pass-around? I've been in touch with Stu, and he suggested I try. If it's too late, then no worries, just let me know.

    Many thanks, Peter

    Where in Hawaii are you? Are there other folks in Hawaii who want to try these stones?
