    MTC 20% Sale

    Staff was furloughed due to the main business slowing (restaurant wholesale). Many of the warehouse workers are temps and they were either furloughed or laid off when coronavirus hit. E-commerce was separate and was perpetually understaffed but could usually call on temp workers to help when...

    lets talk suehiro 3k, hyper 2k, bester 2k and a few more.

    Yeah, the 1k Sigma Hard isn't all that hard honestly. The 2k pink hard one is though.

    Depends what you want to do. It's a pretty friable soaker, leaves good contrast cuts pretty fast but also dishes pretty fast as well. Personally I only use it when I'm doing a synthetic wide bevel progression, but I do like it.

    PEBCAK. I've tested both of these stones. Occam's razor: your angle was different when you tested each time. Plenty of explanations possible beyond "the 3k stone is faster than the 1k stone."

    Yes, it's the same. It's been addressed multiple times, even recently someone not believing me and deciding to contact Okumura-san directly who told them it was the same. So yes, I'm sure.

    MTC 20% Sale

    Hah. One of our sales managers told me the other day that he had some customer out in the Hamptons who ordered 105 Hasegawa boards because they heard some hype about it from their customers or something. We're all one big happy Hasegawa hype family.

    MTC 20% Sale

    Yes. Also, if you're in California, LAMTC *should* be launching a site soon which should cut down on shipping cost. However, they'll charge CA sales tax. So... Anyway, I won't be with MTC after next Wednesday so any of you NYC people who stopped by from time to time... it's been nice. Stay safe.
