This is my favorite 1K stone.0.3
I really like this stone. It cuts well,is hard and has great feedback. 0.3
I took my new stone on a test drive yesterday and WOW that sucker was incredible. The swarthy mud it creates while no hint of loading absolutely was great!0.3
Now my Shapton Glass 1K is going to be very lonely . . .
I was also surprised to find the edges already chamfered. I still flattened it including taking the edges off,but probably didnít have to as it was already flat and edges were already treated.
I sharpened two Shun knives (VG-Max Steel) and some nice-but-German paring knife. Both Shuns had chips and that stone not only quickly raised a burr,but it was also aggressive enough to get those chips out without using a coarser stone (if the steel was harder,I probably would have pulled out something coarser).
The polish was consistent and cloudy reminding me more of a natural stone instead of synthetic.
In my mind I had doubts about this stone,however that was quickly changed after the first sharpening. Making my heavy work load infinitely easier littaraly over night.0.3
Awesome stone,simple as that!

What a great stone. 1k stones are the backbone in progressions and this one works well on all steels and leaves a great edge.0.3
