>>7380283 That's not completely wrong, but self-proclaimed "experts" always downplay the need for coarse stones. Everyone needs a coarse stone and it's going to take a lot of practice before op is good enough to make use of a 6k.
If you can't use a coarse stone you have no business using an ultra fine finishing stone. Sure, you can't fuck up the edge so quickly if you're on a 6k but if you're not able to use a stone without fucking it up, what do you need it for?
>>7380363 I just took a closer look at the smith's, it's 400 american grit which is actually a lot higher than I or that other guy was assuming.
At the end of the day, the king and the smiths are going to put a pretty similar finish on the knife and take about the same amount of time to grind. The king might actually be a little faster since it's got more surface area so you can use longer strokes.
>>7380385 >>7380385 You're right, I hadn't noticed they were ANSI 400/1000 grit. That puts them around JIS 700/2000 which is just fine. I'm usually wary of recommending low grit stones to beginners because it's too easy to remove huge amounts of steel on something like a JIS 320 stone when you're still working out the motions.
