Derek, thanks for all the advice. Just to be clear, I’m getting acceptably sharp with what I have, Its just a pain because I don’t have a sink in the garage (Shop). So i have to haul stuff inside to do the sharpening. If I went with stones that don’t have to be soaked, I could use them outside in the garage with little fuss. That is what started this whole thread – getting an 8k shapton or ohishi stone does that for me, as I could use it in combination with my fine diamond.

Kind of got on a tangent with the 600 vs. 1k to 8k transition there.
