Although I have traditionally used an Edge Pro system, I’m starting to appreciate the love and feedback of using a proper wet stone. It’s also less finicky changing angles to get it right and surprisingly therapeutically relaxing. http://www.japanesenaturalstones.com/jns-aoto-matukusuyama/ The Aoto is my first stone and I believe a synthetic natural probably to be used after a 1000 grit. I don’t have a 1000 grit outside of a Chosera Edge Pro attachment. So looking for suggestions what to buy next. Chosera 1000, 8000? JNS 1000/8000 combo? Shapton? (I need the feedback starting out) also impossible to find Shapton in stock in Australia. I don’t know if I need a stand or seal the Aoto. So will take guidance here. There’s a world of difference between his sharp out of the box the Mazaki white 240mm gyuto and the Shun.
