Oh cool thanks.. Kinda wish I would have got those stones before the 800/1000's now... Looks like the microfine ceramics and a set of strops will be my next knife related purchases :)

If i had to pick one set of strops, it would probably be the 5/3.5 combo.

I personally like the Micro Fine ceramics... finish a lot of knives with those.

That would be my recommendation. As much as I love my Choseras and Superstones (and lust over Shaptons) my micro fine ceramics get used on every knife I do. Great ending place and great place to proceed on to water stones if/when the time comes.

:cheer: I may sound silly, but I really think this is the best advice.

Will the jump from 1000 grit diamond to the micro fine ceramics be ok? Or should I get the 1600 grit ceramics?
Either the micro fine ceramics or the 1200/1600 ceramics are fine. As Curtis wrote, you may be able to jump to these ceramics after the 600 grit diamond stones, but then it'll be a lot of work to remove the scratches. Not recommended.

Success!

I'm a new WE owner and am looking for a mirror finish? (See chosera vs ceramics thread?) I called Bob at Oldawan who had my We in stock when I bought and he made me a custom set of chosera's. He thought doing a 1/2k and 2/5k should cover the field for me? I will report by Friday on my progress.

Pretty cool the guy made you custom WE stones.. Choseras are probably the best route as far as getting a mirror polish goes (having seen how well the chosera bench stones do)

Id personally prefer to keep away from them with the wicked edge system though.. To much maintenance which is the main reason I chose the WE over the Edge pro

I can tell you right now you are going to love it! even if you only go to the 600 grit stones your knives will blow the factory edge out of the water... I got over the high cost of this system after I pulled my first knife I sharpened up on it (kershaw scallion) out of the clamp and felt the blade.. I could never get that knife sharp on a bench stone because of the recurve.. was no problem at all for the WEPS
