    What can I say, I learned on the internet...wait....you know what I mean. I don't remember seeing anything about 12K stones when I started. But, I could have just blocked it out.
    If you're wondering I'm probably being sarcastic.

    Thanks Celt. I've already added it to my Xmas list.

    Naniwa also make a 10mm thick 12k that’s about $50. A friend has one and likes it. But I’d glue it to a lapped flat piece of tile (~1 at a hardware store) or a piece of plate glass given the thickness.

    Cool, good tip. Is it because it is fragile or to get it off the table/better grip?

    I have one of the stone holders that my diamond plate came with that should fit it. I wonder if that would be enough support for it? If not, I have some tile. Just have to figure out a way to cut it. Crecentcityrazors has a source for cut to fit plexiglass, too.

    Thin stones are easier to snap if dropped etc. The base gives some support. Same reason 5mm Shapton GS have glass bases.

    It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that ain't so..

    Sometimes it is the most obvious answer that eludes me. Thanks.

    I've also heard about the 10mm stones warping. Because of this, I felt it would be worthwhile to buy the 20mm stone.

    According to Keith Johnson he had problems with both thicknesses warping. He didn't like my solution of gluing the 10mm to a tile to stop the warping, but that is why I did it and it works for me.

    Sounds like I'll figure out something to glue it to. Either that or just use it on warped razors.

    They warp, or change shape between wet and dry.

    That’s the reason that I love Shapton Glass Stones.
