One of the better rough stones on the market. Cuts fast and needs to soak for at least 15 minutes. 0.3

I find that this stone works best after soaking for several hours,and at this point I store mine in water. The Beston will reprofile and cut bevels easily and quickly. Fairly good feel and feedback,though like many coarse stones it can feel a bit rough. Be sure to keep the surface wet during sharpening as this stone is a sponge. Can’t argue with the results though! 0.3
This stone is great. Like others say it cuts fast and gives feed back.0.3
Truly a pleasure to make secondary bevels and primary bevels on.
other posts are right,have plenty of water handy as this stone soaks it up quick.
While I couldn’t live without this stone,it does have it’s faults. It’s a sponge that dries out too fast. It glazes over and clogs up often. I find I need to take my diamond plate to it about every minute or so if I want to keep it’s cutting speed up. That being said,it makes repairs of chips extremely fast even on hard blue steel knives. A real fast cutter that doesn’t leave too deep of scratches.0.3
This stone cut so fast,it takes no time to establish a new bevel and repair nicks. Should have switch to waterstone a long time ago.0.3

This is a great stone,usealy buy one or two of them every year. It do need a good soaking before use,but it is really effective and have a great feel to it. I only wish they sold them bigger like 10x4x4 for us that use them a lot.0.3
Wow this stone is great! Like everyone is saying it soaks up water like a sponge but it has a unique feel and really puts a bevel on your blade quickly and efficiently.0.3
I wish it was a little more wide but thats only if i was to be very nit picky.
5/5 stone for sure. if for some reason it broke/became misplaced i would order another one in a heartbeat.
Excellent stone. Cuts great and forms a great slurry. Perfect addition to by growing whetstone collection!0.3
