    Yeah, I'd take it out if I could, but it's hard-coded into our present e-commerce platform. :p

    Damn, that Hexaloy looks like it might make an interesting knife blade, like for a paring knife.

    Silicon carbide is REALLY brittle and wouldn't support a form as thin as a paring knife. Zirconia ceramic is usually used for ceramic knives because of its relatively high toughness for a ceramic material, and even those are notorious for chipping easily.

    Just wanted to say it's awesome to see people experimenting and pushing the limits with new abrasives, especially American companies. Even though I've been dabbling with bonded diamonds lately, I'd still like to see more attempts to produce finer grit coated diamond plates. Everyone stops at 1200 grit except DMT, and there offerings above EF are relatively limited.

    @FortyTwoBlades What are the chance's of us ever seeing an edge pro size Black Magic Sintered Silicon Carbide version of that stone you sell.

    I think out of all the stones you sell that one for sure makes the most sense to make for an edge pro format size.

    I'd have to look into the tooling costs, but it's the most likely one out of the models we currently produce.

    @wade7575 What makes this a better fit for guided sharpeners than e.g. the Arctic Fox? I would be interested in either but I'm not sure I could afford the Black Magic.

    Mostly the fact that it basically doesn't shed grit so it's going to remain almost exactly the same thickness throughout its lifetime.

    If you ever do make in edge pro format I'll be first in line,what's the grit of that stone about would you say,I also like the fact it seems like a fast cutter as well when compared to stones like it not just the fact it will stay flat for a long time.

    Or cut the 2x4 into a 1x4 and it will fit on the KME!

    I'll let other folks experiment with that. Even using a diamond blade on a tile saw you'd have a hard time cutting sintered silicon carbide. :D

    Let me restate my comment. I hope you will consider manufacturing a 1x4 size as well!
