"Natural Whetstone Company" Arkansas Stone Review

Thank you all for the clarification, so I am at least left with a trans black. The black has a high sg at least lol. I have a Dan's soft as well.
 
I suspect the presence of Hematite in the Dunston might be the reason for it's higher than expected SG.

I finished lapping the black ark from them. It feels like glass at 600 grit sic. So does the trans black, but I think the trans isn't perfectly flat. Can't fit a sheet of paper under it on the granite but against the black and the straight edge their is a small amount of light. Paper thickness not as thick as a business card though. Might order some 80 sic and more 120 and try to get it perfect.

Definitely upset about finding out it isn’t a true “Arkansas Stone.” I guess this just lends credence to my original statement of having gone with a reputable seller.
