    Another good one at a good price is the 400/1000 at Chefs Knives To Go.

    Can also be used as a bevel setter / chip remover after you've lapped a few rocks with it.

    I use a Norton Flattening Stone. It is an aggressive SOB, so just have to be careful not to get carried away.

    this is also the one I use. 400/1000. My DMT325 I use for repairs on my razors. Reworking a heal/stabilizer and doing some hard cutting of the edge for repairs. The 400 works great on lapping the stones. And the price is really hard to beat.

    I especially do not like the Norton stone for flattening (no experience with the Nani) because it only takes one loose particle to make you a very sad honer. Once you have had to sit there digging embedded particulate out of a 12K, you never want to do that again.

    I have been more than happy with my DMT8C for the past 7 years. Its smoothed out really well, and is fine enough for slurry making. (when new I thought the slurry was a bit too "gritty" )

    I decided to get the DMT8C and a Chosera 1K. I think these will be good additions to my honing kit. Thanks for the advice!

    I use and lap Naniwa's (Chosera 1k, superstones 2,3,5,8,10k) using an Atoma diamond plate 400. I have a 1200 reverse side that I use to create slurry on jnats.

    it has to be tamed first , I mean the 400 / 1000 one
    as mine made a few heavy scratches in my Welsh Slate when I used it
    so I had to lap it afterwards with 600 sandpaper
