Wery good stone. If you hold dear your knives and want to keep them sharp for every day use,you must have one. This one is good,for it has the coarse side and the fine side. And the price is cheap. Just remember to soak it well (15mins) before use.
This was part of a gift of different size knives including a chef’s knife. My husband is extremely pleased with the quality of this product and feels it is well worth the price.
A good combo stone for the price,with a caveat: for best results,get an intermediate grit stone like the Bester 1200k or Naniwa Aotoshi 2000k to "bridge the gap between the 800k and 6000k surfaces on this stone.
Also be aware that this combo stone is somewhat smaller and should be used with either the included base or a dedicated stone holder.
Very very very easy to set up an use,the coarser side works well for very dull knives and for repair work,the finer side is great for quick resharpening and regular maintenance. I bought a cheap diamond plate for flattening the stone,from Chefknivestogo,which is a good companion piece.
