Has anyone tried those natrual Chinese waterstone sold by Woodcraft? http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2004920/6180/Natural-Water-Stone-8-x-234-x-114.aspx
How does that grit size of “around” 12,000 compare to a Japanese King-brand 8,000? I believe the particle size in the 8,000 is around 1.3-1.5 micron, according to some info I checked a while on the internet.
Are these kept flat the same way asartificial waterstones? I do assume they wear out slower.
Any opinions would be appreciated.
