    Last week I had the double sided stone. I got the double sided just so I could try both stones out.

    When I first got the stone I went and checked out the price to see what category it would fall in to. http://korin.com/Mizuyama-1000-6000-...ategory=280108

    1k. I soaked the 1k for about 30 min which is about how long it took for the crappy work knives to get up to this stone. The stone was a faster cutter than what I am used to (king) and def. a lot less mud than the king too.
    I have used the sigma II 1.2k stone also and that one was more muddy than the Miz.. But the Sigma was a little faster cutting which seems like the trade off. Because of the lack of mud I seemed to be cleaning off the swarf quite a bit.

    All in all I did do about 10 knives that day. From crappy work knives to carbon (Shigfusa, Mizuno) to my Globals. I had no problems at all. The stone was a good work horse.

    6K. When I soaked the stone I made sure that this part of the stone stayed dry. In fact I only soaked the 1k side to about half way up. The feel of the stone is very soft. Softer than what I am used to in fact I ended up putting a couple gouges that I couldn't get out. I liked the edge it left on all blades. Quite a bit of mud and also would fill up very slow. It wouldn't cut as fast as the 30k but was not bad at all. I found I liked it better than the 1 by a lot. I can see picking this up in a week or two.

    Not being much of a whet stone guy I hope I did the review justice.
    Chewie's the man.

    I tried to contact BurkeCutlery, but he's not responding to my PM so I'm going to pass the stone to the next person for now.

    If by chance you read this, please let me know and I'll tell EdipisReks to ship the stone to you next. Thank you!

    I just sent the 6k to Cclin the other day. This is a nice stone. It builds a nice slurry fast and it gives great feedback. I like it better than my King 6k and will most likely purchase one after the holidays. I'm not saying the King is a bad stone, but this one feels better to my ear.

    hey Mari, i haven't had a chance to use the combo stone at all, due to work and life being crazy this week. would it be okay if i kept the stone for a few days next week? things won't be quite as hectic for me...

    Thanks for the pass-around. It was a pleasure to use, and is on its way to Cali.
