    Default Rozsutec Sharpening Stone

    Has anyone tried this hone? It says 6000 grit. I just ordered one.

    Now I want one! I'm going to have to bookmark it for later when I have a job. Did you order the bigger one?

    It is actually much finer than 6k grit. When I got it I used it before moving to my Guangxi but when I got my USB microscope I discovered the Rozsutec is actualy finer than the Guangxi. I wasn't able to get a nice scratch pattern from it so I sold it because I have better finishers.

    It is a very hard stone so you can also hone your knives on it without having to worry about dishing

    Here are the scratchpatterns of my Rozsutec, a Charnley Forest and a small striped Thuringian.

    Piet.... Thanks a bunch for the info!

    One thing I am not clear on, did you sell the Guangxi or the Rozsutec?

    Also, how was the edge to shave with?

    Ron...yup, the big one.

    I sold the Rozsutec a few days ago. I've used it but I haven't actually shaved off of it afaik, which is a bit embarassing because I've had it for about a year. I've bought a bunch of new vintage hones recently and I felt like a few I didn't use just had to go.

    I had the small one which is a pretty good deal considering the low price. The big version is so thick and wide you could cut it into several decent sized hones

    There's not a significant difference between the scratch patterns left between your thuringian and your CF...

    Which I am certainly glad you did decide to part with them.

    I'm not sure how accurate these pictures are. I didn't always hone enough to remove all previous scratches when I started using my microscope. My other Thuringians and Eschers produce finer scratch patterns. The CF I think I used was pretty fine and I took a finer scratch pattern picture of it later.

    I didn't really know how to interpret sharpness from the scratch patterns at first. Now I think the darker the image the finer the stone is. Of the pictures I took of this razor the one Roszutec image is still one of the darkest. I might have sold it prematurely. Perhaps I get the bigger version if I need something from DICK again.

    That's an old post jcsixx

    I'v got one custom made 250x75x25 with slurry stone. However I am still in proces of laping it as I want to compare two different colours each on one side and their influence for honing purposes. Normaly you don't get those colours separate as they are cut differently. Normaly they come stripy rather looking like coti/BBW combo. once I get my fat backside in gear and manage some soft to scale down my photos I will post them here.

    I will be very interested to hear what your opinion of the grit size is. The reason I am considering purchasing one is a strong desire for a 6000 grit stone that will fill the gap between a Norton 4K and the Norton 8K.
