Do any of you who purchased this stone want to comment about it? All feedback is welcome.
anyone have any experience with this stone? trying to decide between this and gesshin 6k (yeah weird 3k vs 6k, but i just need a quick touch up stone)
Update on uses>
I've been using this stone on single bevels a lot recently, it's giving me a pretty even appearance with a silky smooth texture. The trick, as with most stones, is to work up the mud and let up on the pressure. The edge is crispness.
I've ordered one, will give feedback when it arrives
initially i hated this stone, lol. turns out it has some sort of lacquer layer on top and i just needed to remove it prior to sharpening. once that was done, it was game on. offers plenty of feedback and builds up nice mud, feels just about medium density. the base is perfect, i would def want the base version again. it works differently depending on the pressure you apply. cuts a toothy edge but also leaves a shiny polish with light strokes near rika 5k level but more bite. i'm pretty glad i got this thing, love the fact that i dont have to soak it prior to use so i will probably actually touch up more often.
to the point: good stone and is a keeper in my setup which will most likely get the most use.
Yeah, I got to use panda's yesterday. Great stone, and you can't beat the price!
Really nice feedback and quick metal removal. It feels very balanced and doesn't grab onto the edge to make the ever dreaded "knife divot" -u know what I'm talkin' about!
I'm thinking about grabbing one of these to replace my King Ice Bear 4000 that has been worn down to nothing.
Nice product Mr. Martell
