Posted By: Max S.Been using this stone for a while, also been using it on the edgepro and honestly the more I use it, the more I would rather just use a diamond plate. The stone dishes so freaking fast, and it takes forever to wash the abrasive sand it leaves everywhere! I mean the stuff sticks to your skin, gets in every crack and crevice in your work space. It is somewhat like working with loose silicon carbide, but finer.
Now on the good side, you get a HUGE stone, and the thing does its job in terms of abrasion. It simply does not matter what steel, heck this thing may be able to grind ceramics, who knows. Its hard to say if it is a standard carbide stone or not, perhaps its a carbide stone with a special binder? I don't know! It has its drawbacks, I don't know why the description says it is wear resistant, how could it be? Look how porous it is! If you are like some people out there and despise diamonds, this is your best bet for a coarse stone.
