The micro seems to be a completely different composition and feels like a superior product in both finish and function, with the caveat of the Course side being courser than the 1200/1600 until you lap it (which I still haven't done :unsure: ).

Which was why I would like to have two of them if I could make the fine side coarser on one.

I absolutely LOVE my superfine ceramics and use them all the time, especially when preparing a super polished blade.

I also use mine on almost every blade I do. I guess I should have added that. I was just making the point of the micro-fine's appearing better finished (rounded edges, more consistent appearance) than the 1200/1600 ceramics. The very square edge on the super-fine can be prone to catching until you get them broken in some and get the feel of them down. B) but they do absolutely work a treat.

I think we'll go with beveled edges on the next batch of Superfine stones we have made.

Can they be made a little thicker? Makes it easier to use in curved sections.

I think they're the thickness they are, so that they match up with the diamonds.

There is a medium/fine stone for curved blades that appears to be a bit thicker...

(I'm not sure the grit/micron on these).

I've been eyeing the curved ones for a while. Would be nice to have some finer ones for polishing.

The feel of the 0.6 mic ceramic reminds me of a hard black Arkansas stone I bought a long time ago. Did make things shiny.

The strops clean up the edge after the curved stones pretty well. You can also stick some finer grit 3M film directly to the curved stones.

What do the edges look like after they are broken in?
Can you post a pic?

So was I until I saw this video.
Right at the end you see a close up.



Are they all like this, I can't find any other close pics?
