    It not being a polishing stone I think it did a good job on it. I have no idea's how well I did. I also took the knife to my 4k after to give it more scratches.

    I've been using this stone for a while now. I still like it a lot but not for large bevels (Heiji, Fujiwara, Yoshikane, all single bevels, etc.). This stone releases tiny nuggets of stone at the edges that leave errant scratches.

    I liked the stone. It will be on a future list for acquiring. It is off to Pablo as of about a hour ago.

    Could chamfering the sides help with this?

    Doesn't everyone chamfer?

    I hope so. I only mention it because this solved the same problem for me just last night, albeit on a different stone.

    I own a couple dozen stones and used a few dozen more, all chamfered. I've sharpened several dozen times on two 1.2k stones with reproducible results. The only way to mitigate it is to use less pressure but you still get an occasional chunk. Again, small bevels have been no problem. Even big ones are fine, if you don't mind a little faceting and the occasional scratch. Those scratches really bother me though.

    I'm done playing with it. I like how fast it cuts. Raised a QUICK burr on everything I put on it, O1, S35VN, VG10, etc. To me it felt a little rough, kind of gritty as compared to the SS 1K, King 1k and my favorite so far the Chosera 1K, BUT it did cut faster which is what I like most in any stone. I'm still trying to figure out how Dave can do 60 knives an hour?????

    Thanks a million Tinh. I'll lap it flat and send 'er home.

    I would like to try 1.2K if the passaround is still on. I would also try to do another round of other Sigma II stones, they have been moored at Eamon at the moment.

    I think I would like to give them another try, some things take a few tries to get a good impression.
