never tried the kit. but both of those 8k's are gold!

got the white one first. quite good kasumi. but what its really does best are edges. they feel ultra agressive somehow for an 8k.
and the stone feels just awesome.

but i think i'm gonna give the white 8k away since i like the green one better. its better for kasumi (95% as good as my uchi).
no stray scratches. edges are similar.

the cerax 8k and green 8k is where its at imo
I've been using the King 8K gold for a hi finisher for a while now. Love the edge. Keen but still has bite. That said, the "feel" is average at best. Might be an 8K Suehiro in my future :)

Bunch of enablers here. My wallet hates you guys. Bought the ouka 3 weeks ago and indeed it is a killer stone. Nice creamy feedback that doesn’t load up whatsoever.

All the cerax line I’ve tried has been exceptional so far(1, 3, 5k)
