    Default What to use to slurry on the finest hones?

    Hi guys,

    I have something on my mind.
    Recently I was playing around with some of my natural and synthetic hones
    and slurries.

    I had a cerax 1k/6k combination hone and a half one of those,
    that I turned into slurry stones.
    So I could slurry on both sides.

    And I have to say I liked it.

    I slurried my SS 10k as well wich turned out just great.
    I will be owner of a fine japanese natural hone in some time,
    and would like to slurry this one up, as well.

    But atm the only thing I have to build a slurry on all hones is a micromesh 12k pad.
    Thatīs kind of lame. Not the best equippment

    I have been looking for a DMT 1.2k but those leave stores for 60€ here in germany,
    wich is more than I am willing to pay for a nice hone...

    So, do you guys have any special things you use as a "nagura"?

    In general if it is a fine hone I don't use a slurry. If I want to create a slurry for a stone that didn't have it's own slurry stone I like a credit card sized DMT 325. Cheap and easy to use and I don't think it loses any of it's abrasive on the stone.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    I am using a DMT D8EE and it works pretty fine with my Escher`s and my Nakayama Asagi.

    Not small, not cheap, but very useful.

    would a lapped barber hone work?

    I have been thinking of the DMT credit cards myself, but would prefer the extra fine 1.2k.
    They cost 10bucks here, but I was wondering if they arent wey too thin.
    I read they have about 1mm thickness. If they get sucked onto the hone,
    do I have a chance to move it again? ^^

    I'm with Jimmy, too - no slurry. But if you have to, a pinch of rottenstone/tripoli powder works: its soft and breaks down very finely.

    you can try this one:
    http://www.japaneseknifesharpeningst...tCode=SynNag6k

    unlike most nagura stones this one is 6k grit and its perfect to make slury on polishing stones.
    I am sure Dave will accommodate you with good shipping price.

    well I am thinking of slurrying some 20k+ japanese naturals, and Eshers
    6k and tripoly both wouldnīt be good enough

    The dmt-card system sounds quite nice. But I am not sure,
    because they are just 1mm thick

    Why do you want to do that?
