Posted By: Max S.Fantastic stone, and worth trying, but I am having the same issue I have with the EdgePro 6k polishing tapes. The Shapton Glass 8k stone gives you an absolute mirror polish, just like the Edgepro 3k tape, and the 16 K brings the polish up even higher, again like the 6k tape BUT, the 16 k stone will make scratches on your edge more visible. With the EP 6k tape, I would only use it on some steels. High grit stones can be difficult to work with in this way. It may seem as though the polish gets worse with this stone, but in fact it is getting so much higher in polish, that you can now see scratches from your coarse stones used when you set the bevel. I find certain steels look better than others with this stone. Great feel on the machine though, buttery smooth!
