Re: More sharpening or change of stone?

More Sharpening to answer the question posed. It takes practice, practice practice. At least for me it did. My knives were NOT sharp the first time around.

Re: 1st stone

If you just want to "dip your toes in" and/or budget is an issue, a combo stone is a great idea.
If you just want a do the most as possible stone, I would suggest a chosera 800.

Re: Already have Naniwa Pro #400 .. Do i need #320 stone?

Could be wrong, but I don't think you have that many options in 220 grit range. Shapton pro or glass 220. What else is out there?

Chosera 1000 v. Shapton pro 2000

How different are these two stones. I have been using my cho 1000 for a while and just got the sha pro 2000 (but have not opened the 2000 up yet). I promise I will try and answer this questions myself, but I'll ask anyway - how different are these stones. I've read the cho 1000 is actually more like...

Re: Philadelphia area Sharpeners

One easy and important fix. You must secure your stone. You can't have your stone moving while you sharpen. It looks secure in the second video, but not the first.

Re: Rika 5000 vs Rika 6000

I agree. and enjoy the 5000. Many and many posts are on this forum about the Rika 5000 and how well liked it is. I have read nothing about the 6000. I would wait. If you do buy a 6000 please consider doing a full review.

Re: First 3 stones?

You could, but I don't know that a slurry is necessary (depends on the stone). Its not necessary on the Cho 800 or the king 1200.
From everything I have read and from my experience the 800 "acts" more like a 1000 or higher grit stone.

Re: First 3 stones?

Really depends. If on a strict budget, I'd get a King 300 and 1200. Get proficient on those and then get a Rika 5000.
Right now I'm really enjoying my Chosera 800. Its a great all around stone for beginner and experienced alike, followed by the Rika 5000.

Re: First 3 stones?

Nothing at all wrong with that line up. My suggestion is based mostly because the budget is limited. I would start with two stones, get some practice under your belt and then expand. also i think the 1000 and 2000 are arguably redundant for a brand new beginner sharpener.

Re: First 3 stones?

Great starter set. i think you could skip #3 until you get a hang of things and get use to sharpening.
