5  Very good stone , June 11, 2019
Posted By: Blong

Yes... for the price it's a very good stone...and yes it cuts better that the King Kds....but still love the king kds no matter what...the 6k side leave a 70% mirror finish....which is nice...buy it people you will not regret it. The the feedback and tactile feels really good you know what exactly what you're doing on the stone and the knife.

5  Fantastic stone!, February 18, 2019
Posted By: Pete

No combo like this around. Great feel and feedback, as well as value. I've seen some say this is a great "beginner" stone whatever that means. Definitely recommended for those who want a minimal collection. This thing is special.

This stone, both grits, have a good feel and effective abrasion attributes. The 6000 does tend to get bogged easily, but easily rinses clean. A great value if one needn't hone there knives too often.

I have concluded that my reservations about the stone were due to my technique, not to any shortcomings on the part of the stone. Since I started all thinning, sharpening on a Cerax 320, so that I could slice paper right after the 320, I find the Imanishi totally adequate. The 1000 does its job, and I'm now really liking the buttery feel of the 6000. It does load up quickly but that's an easy fix. Just used the combo to thin down my new Tojiro ITK Nakiri and the edge on that is stunning.

4  Good starter stone, September 13, 2018
Posted By: Lionel Joyce - verified customer

Ok for me as a starter. 1K seems slow, and 6K seems to load up rather too readily. Plan to go over to Cerax 1K and Rika 5K, or Chosera 3K to see if those offer more bite

I've had this stone since 2012, and used it around once a month. I don't have anything to compare it to, but here are my thoughts based on my experience:

The 1000 side is great, no complaints there.
The 5000 side is a bit soft, and I end up gouging it if I'm not super careful. It's possible I'm over-soaking it a bit, but it is annoying. In the end it still works, so not a huge deal.

Overall if I could do it over I'd get a couple Shapton Pro to have the convenience of splash and go, but for a combo stone this has done just fine. My knives are sharp, and there's enough meat left on the stone to last another 20 years at least (unfortunate, as I can't justify the shaptons when this one still works fine).

5  Best bang for the buck, November 6, 2017
Posted By: Leonardo - verified customer

This stone was bought as a replacement to my previous two sided king 1000/6000, I must say that I will never go back to king. this is a huge two sided wet stone, if you are familiar with cerax two sided this is both larger and wider, meaning that you will have more surface area of contact with your knife's edge=faster steel cutting and polishing. Cuts moderately fast, it doesn't wear out as easily as the King did, also the 1000 side has more mas to it than the 6000 and this is great knowing that lower grit wears out faster. I would definitely recommend this to any new or amateur or even perhaps an experienced sharpener to have in their repertory of wet stones.

After spending many, many years sharpening kitchen knives on Arkansas stones, I bought the 1K/6K Imanishi combo stone. I checked both sides with a flattening plate and found the 1K side to be not quite flat, but the 6K side was flat. After flattening, I proceeded to have an enjoyable sharpening session. 1K/6K is an alright combo, but I believe I need to add something around 400 grit, and possibly something in the 3000 grit range. 1K to 6K seems to be a large jump to me.

Stone is as advertised, a quality product! Combination of grit is odd- mid grit stone would be helpful along with this stone.

I wanted to learn to sharpen and the Chefknivestogo forum people recommended I try this stone. It took a few practice sessions to get the hang of holding the knife at the correct angle and then I got good results! Thanks so much!

Posted By: ER - verified customer

For a combo stone, this is probably the best on I've ever used.Needs a bit of a soak time, but I generally just put it in to soak, and come back 30 minutes later and put it to work.Cuts steel well, and after 2+ months of sharpening all my knives at least twice a week, I've only had to flatten it once (and it was barely needing flattening). Probably could have went another two months without much noticeable difference in blade response.I'm anticipating having this one for several years to come.

works great, 15 minutes soak time seems to be little too short though. 25 - 30 minutes work better for me.
