2 people found this review helpfulI've tried everything, this is the best finisher on the market . Super stones are a unique product. If you need a true finisher, there isn't a better or more versatile finisher available at any price. This thing is amazing. This thing will quickly take even wear resistant stainless steels from a ~1k to a true mirror finish with excellent results. Quick and easy, good results. I have a lot of stones, this is my favorite finisher for all bladed tools. Knives, razors, planes. To does thing other polishing/finishing stones like the 5k-12k Shapton Pro, the 5k-10k Chosera, 6k-16k Shapton glass stones just can't do. It's got a rubbery texture that's different from all those other stones. It wears pretty slow yet somehow works very quickly but also gently, but it's not a hard stone like those. This is a true finisher that you're probably not going to use for anything other than edge trailing strokes. It's a powerful polisher that works very well and very quickly against against any steel you wound run into on a kitchen knife. Even hap40. Obviously these are excellent finishers for razors as well. I can't say enough good things about these. A real stand out, and yes they are true splash and go, they even work quite well dry. If you want a true finisher for any tool, consider super stones. This 12k is magic, and yes like every stone the grit is pretty arbitrary. The finish this leaves is on the level of the shapton 30k stones. Extremely similar to those, but it works better, and it costs less.
