I've been using a Gesshin 400 for a while now and I've always though of it as a Beston that wears a little faster, gives a little nicer finish and feels great. HOWEVER, I recently did some work on a couple of very wear-resistant blades (A-type and Niolox) and I could swear the G400 is significantly faster than the Beston. Anyone else have this experience or am I just imagining things?
Yup, the Gesshin 400x does cut faster on some knives than the Beston 500x does. It's become one of my must have coarse stones always in my bucket ready to go.
Love. This. Stone. :D I don't need it that often, but when I do, boy is it ever great!
