- verified customerThe Ohmura does dish a bit but it cuts so fast it's well worth it. And it leaves a much more polished finish than you'd expect from the grit. It's easy to jump right to the 2k Green Brick; as Thom says, that's a killer 1/2 combo. In fact, that's my normal progression for sharpening German knives.
It's also a great stone for setting bevels on J-knives. True, it dishes a bit faster but VG-10 and SG-2 both melt pretty quickly at the touch of the Ohmura. The time saved by using this stone is worth the stone spent on the job. Use a bit of pressure and let it build up a thick coating of mud. Mud- that's key with this stone.
I wish I could give it 4.5 stars. The half star deduction is just be for dishing faster than a DMT. ;)
