    Any comments regarding these stones would be helpful. I was toying with the idea of ordering some of these based on a recommendation of a buddy of mine that does a lot of tool sharpening. Just wondering how well these work especially with 52100.

    My impressions were very positive for 3K, 6K and particularly 10K. 1K was a decent stone, but I had an issue with the sound while flattening and sharpening. To me it was like nails on a chalkboard , so I didn't give it much attention.

    3, 6, and 10K worked all well on 52100. Good feel, very little dishing.

    I am down for 10K from Tools From Japan (company that provided stones for pass-around http://www.toolsfromjapan.com/store/), contemplating getting 6k as well.

    Hope this helps. I believe JohnnyChance is writing a more detailed review. I only tried stones on 52100.

    Passaround List for Sigma II Stones

    This is a little bit overdue, sorry folks.

    I think to simplify logistics, it would make sense to group people by region. The stones are currently with a forum member in NYC.

    There were a few people interested in reviews, but I hope I didn't miss anybody who wanted to partake in a pass-around. Please post in this thread and I will add you to the list.

    First Region
    Marko
    JohnnyChance
    MattRud (NYC) - has them currently
    SachemAllison (NYC) - next
    Nilloc (NY, Long Island)

    Second Region
    tk59 (SoCal)
    Johndoughy (TX)
    PabloZ (NM)
    SpikeC (OR)



    Thanks,
    Marko

    PS: I have you as interested in reviews, but please correct me if you want to get on a pass-around.

    Stones are soaking right now.....

    Fantastic. I am writing to Sachem Allison to let him know to contact you and to arrange a pickup once you are done testing - take your time.

    I don't think they need to be soaked for long - up to 30 min or so on the higher grits.
