Re: 1000g water stones ()

Jim, the King 800 was my first waterstone some 25+ years ago. I used it for nearly a decade, along with other King stones, such as the Gold 8000. The problem with the King 800 is not just that it is best suited to O1 steel, but that it wears quickly and, unless you are mindful of using the whole face when honing, needs to be flattened frequently.

Regards from Perth
