That is some interesting wood, I am looking forward to seeing how this comes out. Just to torture me, how much did that stock cost you?

If you can turn the adjusting knob with one finger, it is not too tight.  If you need a thumb and finger it is too tight.

As to brand, take a look at Atoma.  You can find them on Amazon at good prices.  They cut very well and really last.  I have DMT stones too and the Atoma are head and shoulders better.  Do read carefu...
