They are also very easy to change when stropping. I already had the 140 diamond plate as well as DMT 3x8 plates so I use the DMTs most of the time. So if you have any 3x8 metal stones you won't need the 140 grit stone. Also, I leave the balsa strop in the bag and put it in the stone holder upside down. The magnet is on top and the magnet on the other strops stick to it to hold them in place. So if you have the balsa strop you don't need anything else. But if you need a lapping stone or very coarse diamond stone the 140 grit works well. I now have the balsa (Boron carbide 1 micron) and a couple of horse and leather strops. You don't need more than one or two really but I got a couple extra to play with different sprays. Recently started honing my straight razors also and these have done a good job on those also. Great quality setup that is easy to use and store. Way to go Mark.
