I'm looking to expand my japanese waterstone selection with a finer stone. Especially since I fairly recently got a Mac Pro 8 inch chef knife and a Tojiro DP 10 inch chef knife.
I got a KING 1000 that I start off with and then a KING 4000 that I use to polish the edge. I use a Norton flattening stone to flatten.
I would like to get one more stone that's finer than the 4000... so maybe a 6000 or an 8000? Not sure what grit size would make most sense.
I don't care that much about a mirror finish but from what I understand my Japanese knifes could potentially get sharper if I would add another stone to my kit.
I normally strop a bit on newspaper as a final step after deburring on the KING 4000.
Also, a final question - Anyone on the forum from the UK that could recommend a good place to buy stones? It's a bit hard to find here.
