    How do these two compare in terms of dish resistance?

    Others are much better at analyzing stones than me-often little things don't bother me the way they may bother others. That being said I think cerax cuts faster(that could be disputed perhaps), has nicer feedback, how ever it does wear out at an above average speed yet it doesn't really clog. King wears slower, and it's cheap.

    King doesn't feel like crap in use at all though, and cerax cost almost twice as much($30 vs $55-60?). Still, I think cerax is worth the extra money.

    I agree what what labor says about the Cerax 320, I love the stone, but it is not from the traditional line. Sadly, I have not used the Chemical 320, which is from the traditional line so I will be of no use there. The Akamon 1k is very reminiscent of a king 1k, maybe even a bit softer but faster. The Kouga (3k) is slightly harder than the Rika (5k) and slightly less muddy. It leaves a very similar edge and finish, though. It still feels quite creamy feedback wise. The Shiramine (6k) is more similar to the kouga than the Rika as it, while a medium soft stone, is still slightly harder and less muddy than the Rika. It leaves a finer edge but a similar cosmetic finish. I W8 leaves a matte finish that has fair contrast and reminds me of a Gesshin 8k.

    The cerax 320 and rika 5000 are the standouts, though, imo.

    Do you have experience with the Cerax 1000 ? It looks like it's a fast stone but from what I have seen on videos, it seems to load up fast.

    I'm sure the Cerax 320-1000, rika 5k and W8 would make a good set-up.

    The cerax 1k is a good stone and a great value but I did not keep it. It sort of loads in that it stains but it does not stop cutting. It is a medium hard stone that is softer than a Chosera or so Shapton but still much harder than a King, for example. It cuts quickly and leaves a clean edge.
