    WTB - morihei 1k or imanishi 1k (AUS)

    Gday people, Putting out a bit of a feeler. wondering if anybody in AUS had either of these stones they potentially wanted to let go. Don’t really want to buy internationally as it’s quite a hassle. Either of these 2 would be cool. Morihei hishiboshi 1000 grit. Imanishi arashyama 1000...

    any reason to get a whetstone higher than 3000?

    What grit ceramic rod to get? If any?

    So, newbie to j-knives here. I read that you want to get a ceramic rod with them instead of a steel steel. Question is, what grit do you get? I normally see them at 1000,1500,2000. I was looking at the CKTG Black Ceramic Sharpening Rod 270mm from CKTG with stellar reviews that is a 2k grit...
