    I follow the same routine. Curious why TK doesn't approve though...

    I've never used bleach out of fear that it would dissolve one or more components in the stone. I could never keep it all that clean out of laziness and the frequency that I'm using the stones. I have nothing against permasoaking per se.

    I think the best starting point is the old bester to rika...very affordable, too.

    Would love to see some pics of the Takeda fam...I miss mine.
    Thanks for the advice, will look into it. I wish it was easier to post pics on KKF, I always fall for the fact that I want to post a pic, but have to upload it to a site ...where im not a member at, etc...urrrgh...wish we had an option to upload straight from a computer into the text box...whats up admins? hook us up.

    Thanks man, Ill watch that video after I get all this responces out of the way.

    So it really comes down to personal preference and how much you want to spend. For me, the beston, bester, rika combo is for me where the law of dimishing returns kicks in. This is a great set (especially for carbon) and anything more expensive than this is will not offer an improvement in performance in relation to increase in price. There's a reason this set is so highly regarded.

    If there are certain characteristics that you know you want in a stone, for example splash'n go, excellent feeling and feedback, or super fast cutting ability, there would be other recommendations.
    Great feedback, thats what I like - getting the most worth out of my moneys. Thank you.

    The donate button is just for donations. What you did was become a supporting member by making a subscription payment which gives you the picture upload capabilities as well as increased PM limits and you got that cool badge placed above your avatar too.

    Either way the support is appreciated - thank you!
