It leaves a nice aggressive toothy edge that has great edge retention. These stones are a bit pricey but consider that you'll never have to flatten them and since they're all the same thickness and will never change thickness, you will get consistent angles on your EP without having to use a stop collar/marker/angle cube when switching stones. I originally bought all the lower end Shapton glass stones, but wish I had bought all the Atomas up to 1200, and then bought the 2k and up Shapton stones. The 140 Atoma plate is all you'll ever need for fast reprofiling, even on the hardest wear resistant steels.
