Posted By: Carol T.This is the most expensive stone I have, and I had a bit of a hard time believing it would be worth it to me. Over time, I have come to be very glad I got this, it is a great stone. It cuts extremely well, and wears very slowly. Ken Schwartz recommended it to me as part of a whole range of Nubatama stones, as THE stone to follow the Bamboo 150, and he was absolutely right! The 320 works extremely well with the scratch pattern left by the 150. The stone does stain like mad, but this doesn't seem to affect its performance.
I have also used the 320 as a starting point rather than to follow the 150, and it works very well for that, too, far better than the stones in this grit range I have used in the past. In the end, I am glad I spent the money getting this stone rather than a lower-cost 320 or just making the jump from the 150 to a 1K.
