    Sigma Select II 1.2k passaround

    After trying out the 1, 3 and 5k stones in Marko's passaround, Schtoo mentioned that the line also included a 1.2k stone that had all of the advantages of a Shapton only better. Being weak, I bought the stone. When it arrived, there was a crack in the stone and he prompty replaced it. Now, I have two with a green light to do whatever with the cracked one. So, if you want to try out this stone, reply to this thread. The stone has been drying out for a couple of days already. I will ship it off as soon as the list is finalized or the mass stops dropping.

    To the mods: If this passaround is a problem, please delete it. Maybe this should be an addendum to the Sigma Select II thread in Marko's subforum.

    What's it like? That Select II series was so different from stone to stone.

    This one is not different. That is, it's different than the others, haha. I don't want to spill my beans yet but I will say that I had the option to get a refund and just pass it on but I bought it anyway.

    Spike, happy birthday, you're in, too.

    Okay. The stone is in LA now. Where are you at, Spike?

    Here are a few of my observations about the stone:
    1. It doesn't dish much at all.
    2. It's definitely on the fast end of the spectrum.
    3. I haven't found a steel it doesn't abrade well.
    4. It's a soaker.
    5. #1-3 = a lot of stone

    Sure thing, Paul. That makes it Eamon, Spike, Crothcipt and Paul. Spike, nevermind. I found your addy. Looks like an all western US line-up! Is anyone in a particular hurry? If not, I guess we'll go in order of sign-up with Eamon next.

    Hmm I was wondering if this is still going around.
