Is this normal polish level?

Post by Tic tac fresh »

Hi Everybody,

I wanted to try my hand at flattening a blade road. It didn’t need it but I wanted the experience. The victim is a Daovua steak knife.

I started on a Naniwa super 400 and finished on the Naniwa 2k green brick.

I did not expect such a high level of polish. Is this normal for the average 2k stone?

Or is the green brick an outlier?

The Green Brick is known as a pretty good polisher. With a thin layer of mud, it polishes like a 4K stone. Also it has great feel and is fun to use.
