    Was going to order it a bit ago, but it didn't put my order over the free shipping threshold, so I swapped for a JNS 6k. Interested to hear about it as well.

    There is a very positive costumer review on his website of that stone.

    5-star reviews there are common and don't really say a whole lot. There's more sycophancy and justification than honest commentary.

    would be nice to see the results in more detail. I'm out of budget now, but I'd be interested to see how the new 1k finish looks next to the classic 800.

    I had the chance to use the JNS 800 and JNS 1000 (the 'old' one) side by side and they are VERY different. 800 is fast, muddy and leaves rather nice finish on wide bevels - can be followed by 3000-4000 grit or even 6000. The JNS 1000 is a hard stone (closer to Gesshin 2000, but different feel). Though I do not know how does the new JNS 1000 behave.

    I've had the original one, asking about the new one.. And don't care about the 800.
