For a combo stone,this is probably the best on I’ve ever used.0.3
Needs a bit of a soak time,but I generally just put it in to soak,and come back 30 minutes later and put it to work.
Cuts steel well,and after 2+ months of sharpening all my knives at least twice a week,I’ve only had to flatten it once (and it was barely needing flattening). Probably could have went another two months without much noticeable difference in blade response.
I’m anticipating having this one for several years to come.
