    Chosera Stones?

    Hi

    I got the #400, #1000 and #5000 Chosera stones and use a SS 3000 in between the 1000 and 5000. To the question... I consider replacing the SS 3000, what do you recommend, the Chosera 2000 or 3000 or maybe something else?

    Cheers
    Pär

    I dont think you need a stone between the 1000 and 5000.

    I agree i go straight from a king 1200 to my chosera 5000 and find that jump fine the choseras don't take long to polish out the coarser scratches.
    I would get a higher grit finishing stone instead.
    I currently use a naniwa snow white 8000 and love the results that I get with it.

    Do same when I'm lazy i.e. 1000-5000 but get at better result with a stone in between. For some knife I want to stop earlier than 5k but after 1k so that's also an aspect. Got a 8000 SS for finish but to be honest I usually strops after 5k instead.

    My progression is 400, 1K, 3K, 5K all chosera. I have other finishing stones. I have the 10K but I never use it. Don't like it.

    My general philoshophy is more stones, less time, less steel.

    So I assume you like the 3k? Out of curiosity, what do you finish with?

    I really like the 3K. I also use it for a touch-up stone.

    Ohira Tomae (Spelling?) J-nat, Takashima, J-nat and an Israeli-natural. In that order.

    When using synthetics, I definitely prefer the Chosera.
    I use 400-800-1K-5K-10K, and that seems to work just fine.
    I've not yet seen the need for a stone between the 1K and the 5K really.

    If you have a few stainless you may want to stop at 2000; for your carbons you may stop at 3000 + leather, or deburr and strop on 5000.
