This may be a stupid question but I cant find an answer elsewhere. I have a 1000 grit water-stone and stone fixer which I purchased from Korin ( http://korin.com/Shop/Stone-Fixer). The stone fixer is a very course surface. When I apply even the slightest pressure to the stone with the fixer, I produce grooves on the sharpening stone. My question is this: Is it ok to have small groves on the sharpening stone or is my approach/technique in need of improvement?
