Stone suggestions

Post by adamhoward » 09 Oct 2018, 22:45

I currently have a smith's TI-6, jns 300, shapton glass 500, 2k, 16k, and a nice Aizu. Been using an Omura as nagura and for flattening the Aizu. And a Naniwa 220 flattening stone on the rest.

What's next? I love the naturals but am not ready to invest in a finisher yet. Looking to possibly try some fingerstones first before taking that jump. It's a big rabbit hole :eek:

I've been considering the big gaps and being a fan of the jns 300 I was considering the 1000/8000 combo stone and have heard good things on the Kitayama as far as synthetics go.

And then brings the question of the diamond plate for flattening and slurry. Is what I'm using now sufficient and a diamond plate would just make it feel like less of a chore?
