- verified customerThe stone is listed as 2k, but it seems closer to 5k to me. It's a very very soft stone that gets muddy fast, and that mud is what will give almost a hazy mirror finish. The finish is actually quite beautiful and some people would surely prefer it to a polished mirror finish on the right knife. It's a little tricky to get the soaking time right. Soak it too long, and it gets mushy, which you can fix by lapping with a diamond plate. It stains your fingers a dark dark blue. It can be pretty fun to sharpen with, if you like a soft muddy stone. You might want to wear latex gloves if you don't like blue fingers though. It cuts much slower than I would expect for a 2k stone, especially one this soft. The cutting speed seems more like a 10k stone to me. I have used it to finish kitchen knives with good results.
