    Just let Edipis have at least three weeks with it.

    Other than that, please don't gouge the stone, try to sharpen evenly over the entire face of the stone so it doesn't dish because it's expensive and I would hate to have to constantly flatten it. (FWIW, I haven't seen the stone in several months). And $300 in insurance.

    Besides the above, use it a lot.

    For the people who previously used it, did you guys use it as a splash and go, or short soak? What worked best?

    I used splash and go, just like my other Shapton Pros.

    I'd take another turn with it, but I'm afraid I'd want to buy one if I did, it's that good.

    Thanks for the passaround!

    Thanks, Rick.

    Just keep borrowing it. As long as you don't have to pay postage more than - about 20 times? - you'll come out ahead without having to buy one!

    I used it pretty much as splash and go like the website I linked earlier said. Soaking it would change the color and the grit(?). It worked great that way. I def. fell in love with a stone.

    Cool! I'll PM EdipidReks my mailing info. I'm in no rush, so whenever you've had enough with it...

    Just to clarify - I should NOT flatten it, just sharpen on it? I plan on sharpening a couple of my SRs, and a couple of kitchen knives just to see what the edge is like on them with it.

    For your razors, I understand that you have to use a flat stone, so go ahead and flatten it. I just do not want people to flatten it constantly because it's not a thick stone to begin with, it's expensive, and I would like as many people to use it as possible.

    So please try to use the entire surface area of the stone, rather than just focusing on the center and don't flatten it more than absolutely necessary.

    I have (3) Shapton GS's - 1k, 4k and 8k, so I'm familiar with how thin they are. I find they dish very slowly, and I don't flatten mine very often, and as little as necessary. The higher the grit, the less use they get and the less they dish on me. I do try to use the entire stone AMAP to avoid dishing. I'm not expecting to a lot of sharpening on it, so it may not need any flattening at all. Thanks again - really looking foreward to it! mpp
