    Smile My New Stones

    My new stones are arrived from Japanwoodworker.
    DMT 325
    Nonpariel Blue (Aoto) Water Stone (2k on tag but site description is manufactured from a combination of #1000 to #3000 grit abrasives in a binder of natural clays. Stamps are look same but i don't know if it is a Jimzo stone. According to some comments it's like 4k or 5k, more than 2k.)
    Takenoko 8k


    Thinking to seal with nail polish before use. All sides are flat. Can i use non writing side for protect stamps or should i use writing side for honing? Should i soak before use and how long? All other recommends are welcome too.


    I have also DMT 1200, Naniwa 12k, Lapping Films and crox

    I always check those out in JW. Let us know how they perform. The natural binders interest me.

    I can't wrap my head around the justification for a mixed grit hone.

    supposed to mimic natural stone slurry breakdown. It works for knives.
    I find that hone too muddy for razors.

    Seal the sides of the Aoto or it will eventually crack and split.
    You can use either side to hone on.

    Excellent. That makes sense. However, unless the 1k grit in it actually does break down, it's still going to be leaving some 1k deep scratches, though they would be mitigated by the higher grit.

    To my knowledge this is a knife sharpening stone, it is very nice and muddy. If you have experience with King 1k, this is softer. I have used one on razors many years a go and decided that there are better options.

    Same pretty much is true with the tanba aotos.

    They're cheap which makes them tempting, but you might as well put your hands in a dried up mud puddle - same effect.
