Another new stone... the Gesshin 3000 (a true splash and go stone)

    Just added a new stone on our site... the #Gesshin 3000... here's the product description:
    The Gesshin™ 3000 Grit Sharpening Stone is a very different kind of stone from most that I have seen on the market. These stones are entirely splash and go... they require no soak whatsoever. Just a splash of water and they are ready to go. In fact, its very important that these stones are not soaked, as they will fall apart. You will notice that the stones are lacquered on all sides but one. The non-lacquered surface is usable surface (the opposite side from where our logo is). Because of the way these stones are bound together, they are a bit more brittle than the other stones we have in stock. It is very important to round the corners of the stone before and after flattening to prevent chipping along the edges.

    This stone makes an excellent touch up stone. It is fast cutting, slow to dish, and provides an excellent edge, with a solid amount of bite. The polish this stone leaves also looks like a much higher grit than the 3000 grit would suggest (the edge is, however, clearly 3000 grit in feeling). Though it does not leave contrast between hagane and jigane, it does leave a very consistent and even polished edge. The alumina based abrasive works well on a wide variety of steels. The surface of the stone will look as if it is loading up while sharpening (i.e. it becomes blackish), but as you add water, you will notice that the stone does not load as it cuts.
