Okay, I'm about to take the plunge and get a "finishing" stone. I'm going to take Leighton up on his offer and see what my edge should feel like after the Norton 8k, but it seems like I should have at least one more stone in the process. I can get a Naniwa 10k Chosera for about $65 and a 12k for about $75. Which one would you guys recommend? Cheers!
