    Haha. I'd be all over one of these, if I didn't just receive a used one. The feedback never ceases to surprise me every time I use the Gesshin line.

    I just placed an order for one of these and a 4000 Gesshin. I was very impressed with the 400 grit Gesshin so I am very excited for these new additions.

    When it comes to the 4000 grit Gesshin, I currently use a DMT XXC for flattening, should I have another stone for smoothing the surface or will I be ok with just the DMT? If I do need a finer stone for smoothing the surface, what do you recommend?

    Smoothing the surface is not always necessary... it depends on what you are doing with the stone... the coarser surface from the dmt is not a hinderance unless you are really trying to push the fine-ness of the edge... often times, the coarser surface helps the stone cut more quickly and have better tactile feedback.

    If you do want to clean up the surface, you can use a synthetic nagura or diamond plate... i should mention that my gesshin 4k has destroyed a couple of my diamond plates (the diaface ones... the last much less time that they would if being used on other stones)

    That's how I've been using mine. No complaints here.

    I suppose I'm a JKI whore using the Gesshin 200, 2k, 4k, Awasedo progression... But oh well, I couldn't be happier.

    Enjoy your new stones, that 4k is gonna make you smile.

    It's not a bad thing. Jon did a ton of testing on a pile of stones to get these just right for kitchen knives. I have almost every stone he's brought in and they are all at least really good, lol.
