2 people found this review helpfulFirst waterstone I have ever used so take my review for what it is, a rank novices opinion. However, coming from oilstones to this is a revelation. I also have a few diamond plates, both eze lap plates of 600 and 1200. I will say that the bester 1200 is a completely different animal than the eze 1200. The finish is much better. I do understand about feedback and I think this stone has great feedback. A really nice feel in use and easy to tell when you are off angle. The sound and the feel change instantly. I am very happyso far to have made the switch and with my choice of stones. By the way, I use my stones for woodworking tools. Plane blades and chisels and the like, carbon steel and the cutting action is fine on this steel.
