how would you compare the Debado MD-100 with the SP1k?Yep, this very directly mirrors my experience and opinion. FWIW. my go to progression these days (depending on how coarse I need to start) is the Shapton Pro #320, Shapton Pro #1000, Suehiro Debado MD-100, Ai-Iwatani J-nat, finishing with the Shapton Pro 12k for a very nice micro-bevel. I pretty much always forego my Shapton Pro #5000. As others have pointed out, it gives very minimal feedback and just doesn't seem to fit well into my sharpening style and needs. The Shapton Pro 12k however, offers really good feedback and leaves a very bitey edge, IMHO.
