    Hey Guys... just added a few new stones I thought you guys might enjoy.

    First up, an Extra Large version of our Gesshin 400. Here's a link so you can check out the size differences on our Instagram page:

    and here's a link to the product page:
    Gesshin 400 Grit Extra Large Stone

    Its longer, wider, and taller than the normal gesshin 400 by a decent bit, but aside from that, the same stone we all know and love ;)

    Next is a ceramic 3000 grit stone. There has been a lot of demand lately for toothier feeling edges. Many people have been finishing at lower grits than they used to. I've been getting a lot of requests for 3000 grit stone, so I had a new one made. It's like a toothier version of our Gesshin 4000, but a bit less expensive. It requires soaking, but cuts crazy fast, has a nice grippy feel, and dishes slowly. Hope you enjoy...

    And last up is a new stone fixer. I know most of you use diamond flattening plates. I often do as well. However, there are times when I wish I had a larger flattener, or something I felt more comfortable using on really coarse stones (we use a lot of coarse stones over here). Because of that, I spent some time testing fixers in grits from 100-240. We ended up having these 100 grit ones made because they cut the fastest, and could also be used for really coarse repair work on your knives in a pinch. I liked the grooved sides I saw on some other flattening stones, as it helped reduce sticking, so I asked for that. They are rather large, which can help with larger stones. An added benefit I found with them once they arrived was that they also worked great for flattening my tough to flatten diamond stones (including my 800 grit vitrified diamond stone... though I needed to flatten the stone fixer again when I was done).
