When I hone with it, it seems too gritty.
Any advice or suggestions?
I have lapped mine successfully by a DMT 600 grit (which I am assuming perfoms similar to the norton lapping stone) and then lapping the chinese 12k with the Norton 4k hone(NOT the lapping stone).
this doesnt take too long and leaves a shiny surface on your chinese 12k.
