    Default Ice Bear hone

    I posted under the basic caption and thought that I would also try here.

    A local hadware/woodworking specialty store has one of these. They are rated at 10,000 grit.

    Anyone have experience with this stone?

    Thanks!

    They're supposedly the same as the Kitayama reviewed here by forzato.

    Thanks.

    Is there one japanese manufacturer that makes these stones for several companies?

    I guess once you get into the 8000/10000/12000 range some of this becomes subjective.

    If nothing else, I like the logo...

    There is more than one japanese stone manufacturer, but many other companies have stone produced by them for their own brand.

    The knife guys at knife forums seem to prefer the naniwa 10k over this stone, i'd be interested to know if anyone has tried a razor on this.

    I found a british razor site where they reccomended the Ice bear 6000/10000 combination stone over the Norton 4000/8000 because the Ice bear stones are much easier to get on that side of the pond.

    Other than that one refrence I don't kow anything.

    What site was that? I've found very little UK stuff on cut-throats...

    Well;

    I am gathering my goods, but really have no real experience honing yet.

    I will let you know how it works for me.

    Thanks everyone.
