Just wanted to update my experience with the Atomas. I have lost count where I am, with how many knives I've done with them? It is fair to say I have done at least two knives every day since purchase. Mine continue to cut very well. Not as abrasive as new but to the point I must be careful not to chip or leave deep scratch marks on softer steel? I do not even use my 100/200 paddles at all now and have not since I bought the Atomas. I did not buy the 400 and kind of wished I did just to try them out? (maybe I still will?) The 600 is good for lighter stock removal but I like to go back with 400 DMT to put a nice "bite-toothie" edge on? Then followed up with a normal progression depending where I want to end up? The 1200 Atoma seems to be the red haired step child for me? I just have not figured where this stone fits in with my style (or lack of)? Leo suggested on the other thread that it was a good soft tomato edge? And I think he is right on the money! but not to many of my friends and customers use a knife exclusive to soft tomatoes?
If your on a budget and do a lot of stock removal the 140's are perfect for you! If you do light stock removal and just want to make it easier on your self? then I would say get the 600's If you want the 1200's see me for a deal!
