Posted By: Max S This stone always ended up a bit too fine for my kitchen or even pocket blades. If you go much finer than this, your getting into that grey area where you have to ask your self "gee, should I buy a 1 million grit stone, or just use some stropping compound?"
At 1.37 Micron-ish, I found this stone excellent for finishing razors. most guys will tell you to go for the 12k, but there are many followers of this hone. Popular finisher for razors on German forums, and many razor sites out there will tell ya, this is an excellent finisher. Has a lovely creamy/milky feedback to it.
I like a softer stone, so this guy is right up my alley. love it. 12k is a harder stone.
