Help with choosing whetstone please. - Page 2

post #31 of 38
Has any one here used the sigma stones from tools from Japan, they have 5 reviews on there website all 5 stars but they was some a year back so minds may have changed.

Sorry no, but they really don't get any bad reviews, and the price of those sets is hard to be beat.  Just read carefully what the choices are for mixing and matching.  The 400 Atoma is probably a good choice as it will double for the course stone, and you don't want to mess with anything rougher in a diamond plate unless you have some experience.  And the super hard stones are not for kitchen knives.

I have a question, will whestone get confiscated in the custom in australian airport?

Unlikely, but also, you have some Aus vendors - Chef's Armoury, Knives and Stones

Because the australian custom is very strict on goods related to nature, are you sure its okay to bring them?
post #36 of 38
If you are that concerned, you should purchase from an Aus vendor like the ones I listed above...

Not to mention, we are talking about synthetic (man-made) whetstones when you see brands like Sigma Power, Naniwa, Shapton, King, Imanishi/Bester, Suehiro, etc.

Synthetic or natural?

In theory, at least, synthetics ought to be okay.

Naturals, not so much: some of them really are from nearly played-out mines, and I could see restrictions being in place.

Of course, I'm in the US, where they make up rules as they go along in order to show everyone they're in authority, so what do I know?
