    stone for reprofiling or grind away at secondary bevel/thinning

    i've been using this (280grit side) for a while now and really like it for coarse sharpening.

    http://www.amazon.com/Joshua-Roth-18.../dp/B00004TKIW

    but it's now completely worn away. any recommendation for a fast cutting good feedback very coarse stone?
    my other stones are bester 1200/rika 5k

    use a wusthof combo stone (absolutely hate the black coarse side on that one, but the green side is an ok medium grit) + the white side of that josh roth stone (which i quite like) for cheap knives.

    was thinking imanishi 400

    i'd be happy if i could just get the gray 280 by itself in a bigger slab...

    I've found that diamond plates work faster and last longer. I use an Atoma 400.

    i do have a diamond plate for flattening stones but don't like putting knives to that one.

    I also use the atoma 400. Much better.

    I have a Shapton Pro 320 grit that I like a lot.
    It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

    I use sandpaper in the P120-320 range and a Chosera 400.
    With carbon steel, thinning and reprofiling with a Chosera 800 is fine.

    thought about chosera but thats a bit expensive as is an atoma. shapton could be a possibility.

    deanb have you compared with other coarse stones at all? how is the feel during use?

    Beston 500 or Gesshin 400 do most jobs nicely.

    I use the Beston 500. For real heavy duty stuff I use my Atoma 140 but for thinning I use the Beston and it works well

    I think you might be a candidate for a sigma power 120 if you are doing lots of course grinding (sounds like you wore out a stone already?). Theses have a reputation for being aggressive and not going away on you. Really quite cheap too at about $23 plus shipping.
    Stu can get you one: http://www.toolsfromjapan.com/store/...roducts_id=692
