1 people found this review helpfulThis is almost a copy of my 800 grit stone review. I have been using these stones for about ten months and they are very special. I sharpen almost every day and use the Kohetsu stones in almost every situation. The 2K is a muddy stone that has great feedback and cuts fast. Surprisingly, it does not wear quickly. It works well with kasumi finishes, with the hard high-carbon steels, and with a variety of hard and soft stainless steels. I use, or have used, many of the high-quality sharpening stones. The Kohetsu 2K stone, in particular, produces a unique, very sharp aggressive edge. The finish is dull, but edge quality is excellent. The Kohetsu stones have their own personality and feel. I think you can appreciate their distinctiveness if you have already spent time sharpening with other high-end synthetic sharpening stones like Choseras, Shaptons, etc. If I could buy a full set of these, I would.
