Query 3:

From Anthony:

My Shapton Glass 16,000 is nearing the top of its life after 2 1/2 years. I’ve been more than happy with it, however I’m contemplating switching to an Arkansas stone for the ultimate sharpening. Nothing towards the Shapton or different whetstones – I simply don’t take pleasure in pausing to flatten it, particularly if I’m sharpening a bunch of instruments unexpectedly.

It seems that there’s a Black Arkansas stone that’s categorised as even finer than the Translucent stones different shops market as the best grit. It’s solely barely dearer than a alternative Shapton, however I’d worth the time gained again from not flattening a stone after each software, and it will final without end (theoretically).

So, to my query! Has anybody at Wonderful Woodworking used the Black Arkansas from Dan’s and are in a position to present suggestions on it? How excessive a polish/eager an edge can it produce compared to one thing like a Shapton? Will it ever actually must be flattened?
