Thread: Upcomming Sigma II Stones Pass-Around

  1. #21
    Received 10K stone today. Assume the other stones will arrive within days (possibly on Monday). It looks like they might have been all shipped separately. Will give it a try tomorrow.

    Sure, but if you ask people waiting for custom work, Wednesday is likely to be some Wednesday in 2013.

    Jokes aside, I will put together a list and pass-around schedule and post in the thread.

    I have tried the stones and will be ready to pass them onto the next person as soon as I get some packing foam and work out a packing solution that would make them damage-proof. I will order foam today and should have it by Thursday.

    I like some better than others (mostly higher grits), but I need to compare impressions with folks who have more experience using synthetic stones than I. Also, I only sharpened one steel - 52100. These are fast cutting stones and work well on 52100.

    In any event, I think I would leave writing a review to folks like tk59, PensacolaTiger, JohnyChance and the like. These guys have more experience sharpening, more knives in different steels, and more stones on hand to compare to.

    BTW, anybody who might be interested in trying these, is welcome to get in the line. If you guys in Canada don't mind waiting a bit, we can send stones your way eventually.

    @tk59 I will probably buy at least one from the four I tried.
