It is very good on double bevel western style knives, especially carbon steel ones. I tried it on Misono Carbon and UX10 gyutos, and I have achieved the best edge I have ever had with these two knives. It creates an aggessive edge, but refined at the same time. Keep in mind it is a natural stone and you have to adjust your sharpening to it, find sweet spots, etc. It did not work well with yanagi, though. It has minor hard spots and also it creates a drag on the yanagi, nagura helped but I would go with a finer grit and more uniform natural stone for yanagi. I used a synthetic aoto stone before moving to this one. This combination worked well.
