    Sure. It's from Toolshop.de and has been written up here and elsewhere. Some love it, some don't, but for my purposes it should be fine.

    Any thoughts on the Shapton Pro 12k? Would that be as good as the Naniwa 12k?

    I've got a set of Shapton Pro stones, including the 12k. Although I've never used a Naniwa 12k, I really like the finish and feedback of the Shaptons. Another great advantage is that you don't have to soak them. Just a spray or wipe with water and you're ready to go. I can highly recommend the Shapton Pro stones.

    I would also request feedback on the shapton pro 12k. I understand Pro 12k in the Japanese market is the same as Shapton Glass 14k? In the US market. Is this true?

    From the SRP Library - Hones - comparison table - Straight Razor Place Library

    ceramic abrasives in a resin binder.quite hard need less flattening. cuts fast. no soak needed just a bit water on the surface.work without slurry.known for their finer edge. however the pro series has a reputation for too fast wearing for their stones 1k and under. also the 15k pro (rated 12K on their domestic Japanese version) compared to the 16k glass is more expensive and gives less feedback. also the finish achieved is somewhat matte compared to the more traditional waterstones
