1 people found this review helpfulComing from diamond stones I love this Naniwa 1K Pro-Stone so much more than another brand's 5K stone I purchased at the same time. It has true splash and go convenience, its almost as hard (no rookie issues with gouging) and cuts nearly as fast as a diamond stone. The Naniwa Pro 1K feels great and provides fantastic feedback. Best of all (unlike the brand-X 5000 grit I purchased) its dries very quickly making storage and care of the stone a snap as well. The price is great compared to the higher grits in the Naniwa Pro line-up making this a no-brainer if you're in the market for a 1k waterstone. For me its a bit more aggressive than I need for my well-maitained kitchen knives. I would probably use it a lot more if were a higher grit like 2 or 3k. I definitely wouldn't purchase anything coarser than this for normal sharpening and maintenance.
