bump! this is a cool thread, i just felt the need to add my 2cents. im enjoying chosera 400,gesshin 2k,gesshin 4k at the moment. i almost pulled the trigger on chefdogs jns 1k in bst the other day just because of all the great feedback it gets but i was worried it would overlap the work my gesshin 2k is doing. i still havent found a great low grit stone for thinning that i like for thinning...i may get a gesshin 220 or even that pink stone 220. king 800 seems to get alot of love too, i may just have pick one up. im very interested in hearing what everybody is using these days so please people keep this thread going!
