    Their regular price for these is somewhere around $415 or so, which despite their ability to make excellent stones, is a little bit out of the realm of reasonable in my opinion. Just as their black stones are great, but $330 is a bit out of bounds there, too, in my opinion.

    The black trans stone from natural whetstone is just as good in quality and density for about $200, and I may just order one of those to compliment this, instead. I did learn that I need to call and ask ordering one of those before, too, though. I got a stone that was not even thickness, but that was just a geometric issue, as the stone was excellent after conditioning the surface.
    If it were me and I paid that much and it bothered me I would call them. They would make it right.

    You're right, but I think it's fair play, not because I don't wish they provided actual size, but because every other cutter sells 3/4th inch stones as full thickness.
