So if you're going to do some reprofiling, (even with the 120 grit), you're going to be there a while. In particular, CBN’s high thermal stability and chemical resistance make it suitable for sharpening in conditions where synthetic diamonds are not normally employed. These characteristics exceed the values of synthetic diamonds and conventional abrasives such as silicon carbide and aluminum oxide. If your going to get the Metallic stones try a 2K as well and also the Gunny Juice,the 2K Metallic CBN refines the edge much better then one would think and if you take a gently with some finishing pass's with that stone the edge won't have many burr's at all if any.

I wonder if it would make sense to do something like get the metallic bonded CBN for your lower grits (say, up to 400), and then get resin-bonded CBN (or Venev, or Diamond Matrix) for the higher grits. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Super Schleifmedien, mit agressivem “Biss”… mit ÖL und Wasser verwendbar, Abstufungen 100, 200, 400, 800, 1200 passen prima zusammen. Sharpening (recreating the grit projections) of diamond and CBN grinding wheels after dressing or during the grinding process. The broad, perfectly flat carbon steel embryo of this stone is coated with fast-cutting 400-mesh CBN on one side and finer 800-mesh CBN on the other.Most ceramic waterstones (1200 grit or below) have no trouble with many common 'supersteels' as the vast steel matrix around the carbides is soft comparatively and thus, easily cut by these ceramics. The best metallic CBN stones to get are the 120 240 400 and 1K 2K,I personally would get the 120 400 and 1K stones for doing lower grit sharpening and then using the Venev stones you have to refine your edge or use a good quality Japanese water stone. The softer the bond the shallower the scratches from the same abrasive and generally the more even the scratch pattern because those proud crystals get removed quickly. What I refer to as scratchy is, after using the Matrix stones from Edge Pro starting with the 80 to the 4000, the finished edge has a polish to it.

I don't have access to Cliff Stamp to discuss my findings when I used his plateau method for the 10 trials I did. Ideal for putting an edge on knives, this stone is also the perfect choice for sharpening wood chisels, plane irons, and similar tools and comes complete with a high-quality suede protective case. That is interesting but perhaps you could share more information and someone aside from Cliff may have some insight? Read more about the condition New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging is applicable). I believe that there is not normally a "best" stone for sharpening tool steels, but more of an "it depends on what you want out of it" type of answer.

Once your edge has all the damage removed and the actual apex is no longer visibly reflecting light -- then you know that you have gotten the apex thin enough to apply a micro-bevel at apex.

Most important is that CBN is harder and has greater abrasion, thermal and chemical resistance than either synthetic diamonds (though less so than natural diamonds), silicon carbide, or aluminum oxide.So far I have been recommended the Venev stones but it seems like these stones will be next to impossible to get for the time being.

First let me say thank you to gritomatic for making so many nice sharpening supplies available, including these stones.When you flatten them use the coarsest powder then move to a powder that's halfway between the stones grit then finish using a powder the same grit or 1 grit lower. This is where the fixed abrasives are a god-send as you can trivially bring knives to very high sharpness with even coarse plates such as the Spyderco CBN assuming you use 1- lubricant, 2 - light pressure, - edge forward strokes at slightly higher angle to grind a micro bevel, 3 - alternating strokes from one side to other/ crossing scratch patterns. This is more noticeable with lower grits as the abrasive particles are larger, as you move to finer grits you're less likely to see the difference unless you are really looking for it. They get the job done, but they don't cut as aggressively as diamond stones do in my limited experience. This sharpening stone is ideal for putting an edge on knives, sharpening wood chisels, plane irons, and similar tools.
