    Tell us more, what are your thoughts? I am currently testing the 500, 1K, and 4K. Will be reporting soon. I don’t really understand yet how this stone differs from the Hishiboshi stones.

    The Green 3k and Karasu 9K are the older stones. it is harder and cut slightly slower than the Hi series, it's harder to create contrast, but performance is underrated. the 9k is not as hard as the Chosera 3k, so making contrast does need a little trick.

    Can anyone elaborate on the 4k? Feedback, speed, clogging, toothiness? Is it splash n go?

    Hey Panda, just in case you may have missed it, I‘ve created a thread about the Morihei stones a couple of weeks ago. In there, you can find lots of Information on the Morihei 4k From me and other people.

    Let me know if you have additional questions!
