When I was looking around for stones I came across disc shaped Naniwas, around 9" in diameter and 1" thick (220x27mm). The store said that they were especially suited for longer knives.
Have anyone used something like it?

I bought a round Naniwa 1000 grit a few years back for a decent price. Tried it just once, liked it but never used it again...

Thanks for the answer. Is there a reason for not using it again? I kind of like the idea with a big round stone, when sharpening longer knives it could be useful.
OT: I spent the new years morning sharpening one of my brothers knives. A Henckles five star I gave him two years ago, I kind of miss the knife; One of the best western handles I've ever encounterd.
The knife was absurdly blunt when iit was handed to me so I started with a DMT and continoued as follows:
Naniwa #400
Shapton #1000
Naniwa ss #2000
Naniwa ss #5000
...and finally a strop loaded with chromium oxide.
Kind of a overkill, but I really wanted to give him a sharp and convex edge for the new year.
The steel were really easy to sharpen but the bolster was a PITA.

Only reason was that handling, soaking and drying the thing takes up a lot of space. Where are you located Vils?

I like the combination:) I cook all the food at home so I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Why not make it comfy? This is MY corner in the apartment!
