Arashiyama 6000x also sometimes referred to as Takenoko 8000x Water Stone. Splash and go. It's a fast cutting stone that gives good feedback and can be used as your last stone for kitchen knives.

    I'm new at water stones, but I really like this 6000 grit stone and it arrived quickly.

      Great value, October 28, 2019

    I think this stone represents one of the best values to be had in the 6k+ finishing stone world. There's a lot of things to like about this stone. It's a relatively hard stone but not hard in the same way as a Shapton Pro. From what I understand this is a splash and go stone(it absorbs some water) but it can be soaked without harming the stone or the performance of the stone. That's a good quality to have compared to some other hard splash and go stones that are not as durable and require more care. It is a joy to sharpen on, good feedback and feel. It is easy to raise a little slurry with a small plate or something to produce a nice slurry if you want to. I get very good edges off of this stone as well, I can't really think of a bad thing to say about it. The 6k Arashiyama is a proven stone, I would easily recommend to anyone in the market for a stone in this range. I think it gets overlooked as new stones come in and out of the market but it shouldn't be forgotten about because it remains a solid contender and is a very nice stone in many ways.

    Use this after my 2000grit Kohetsu. Amazing feel and amazing finish. Fast yet leaves a glassy finished surface. Doesn't plug up on my White
