    The blue/white one was the one I was referring to earlier. I should have clarified this in my earlier post. So that JNS Aoto might still be in the picture then. The red JNS Aoto is out of the picture.

    The JNS Aoto (blue/white) is quite hard. Pretty similar (in hardness) to Gesshin 5000 IIRC.

    The progression will depend on the knife and the final edge requirements but my favorite would be:
    Naniwa Chosera 800
    Gesshin 2000
    Naniwa SS 5K
    and/or
    Beston 8000

    Hi I'm new forgive me.

    I am experimenting with German "sandpaper" Starcke with grits 1000, 1500, 2000, and 5000.

    I have mounted then on cork floor tiles and work on a ceramic tile. Please tell me this is not the worse thing I could do.

    If you end up with sharp knife then why not?
    Whetstones aren't the only way to sharpen knives (though… probably one of the most popular on KKF)

    Yesterday I used DMT coarse, ikarashi, red aoto, and takashima up to various levels on a few knives.
    It was my first time incorporating the dmt and the ikarashi into the lineup. The DMT to the ikarashi was fine on the smaller beveled knives, and put a great toothy edge on my EDC, but cleaning up the DMT scratches on wide and single bevels took a long time. I really liked the pattern and contrast on the ikarashi so I need to find a stone to go between or that leaves a less aggressive pattern than the dmt. Splash and go would be nice, I really enjoyed the no soaking aspect of yesterday. JNS 300? Gesshin 600? Chosera? Opinions welcome!
