choice between the chosera 800 or 1000 as my first/only stone
So do I actually but between the choices, the 1k is favored.

Re: help me choose (chosra 800 or 1000) so I can stop thinking about it

Think of the 1k as a fast 1k producing a finer finish (~1200 - 1500) good for a one stone solution starter stone to build a set around.

Re: help me choose (chosra 800 or 1000) so I can stop thinking about it

I'd recommend the 1k, it spans the ranges better IMO. I have a 400, 800, 1000, 2000, 4000 (Lobster), 5000, 8000 Snow White (SW). I most often use the 400, 1000, 5000 and these three would be considered a complete set: low, mid & fine.

Re: Takamura Chromax 210mm Gyuto?

THIS is a good knife! Typical Takamura fit & finsh, well balanced, good grind, laser performance and gets stoopid sharp. I already like it as much if not more than the Migaki. It’s a winner. Maybe on the page I should put “Gladius Seal of Approval” ;) —- Many will recognize them as a good knife and...

Re: Suggestions for next stone

Understood, each of ours was just a suggestion. Not a bad thing at all. The Imanishi stones have the closest feel to naturals of the synthetics I've tried and my point is that those he has are quite capable and would combine well with JNats. There is no real need to replace with similar grit stones ...

Long and flexible...it came down to pressure control and pressure points...keep the pressure point away from the edge of the stone

Agreed. Use a smaller portion of the stone and short strokes for more control.

Re: Suggestions for next stone

Why replace perfectly good stones? The Bestor 1200 is very aggressive, has good feedback, is slow to dish and produces a useful edge. The Rika 5k also has good feedback and produces a great edge. Just need to add a JNat to give the edge that pop of crispness and longevity and to use to strop it back...

Re: Suggestions for next stone

If you are considering a natural stone, you can also get a full sized one.
CKTG has an excellent one in stock: https://www.chefknivestogo.com/atmequ.html I can highly recommend.

Re: Suggestions for next stone

You have a pretty good set. I'd suggest getting a quality natural stone to replace the 1 micron strop and call it good. It doesn't even have to be a full sized stone but a koppa sized one will work to produce a fabulous edge. They are very reasonably priced. Contact Sin letting him know you are a be...
