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
    This is a Pro, not a GS. It's different.

    oops - missed that. my bad. Didn't know there was a 30k pro, thought there was only 30k GS. No matter - still looking forward to trying it, and I'll treat it with tender loving care.

    sent back to ER today.

    Really amazing stone. The highest grit stone I have i a Gesshin 8K. While there is a noticeable difference in edge polish and sharpness going form 8K, I think to really appreciate what it does there would need to be a couple of other steps in between, such as something in the 12k range, and then something around 20k. Been so busy I didnt' get tp play with it as much as I had hoped, but really enjoyed it while I used it. Thanks again! mpp
