- verified customerAfter a 30-minute soak I drew a grid and lapped it on a DMT-8C (325 grit) in my kitchen sink, under dripping water -- it didn't take long to finish, and a second "verification" lapping took even less time.
Cut to almost two months later, where I again soaked it for half-an-hour, lapped it, and then set to work resetting the bevel on a 5/8", quarter-hollow Little Valley straight razor. It's a fast cutter, and the work went quickly (at least, quicker than I'd expected).
Boy, is this a thirsty stone! Initially, I worked with the stone in a holder, on my kitchen counter. But I couldn't make more than a dozen back-and-forth passes before it was dry and needed spraying. After about ten minutes of this I decided to move my setup into the sink, and continued under dripping water. BIG difference! Next time, I'll let it soak for an hour, but bypass the counter and work in the sink.
I'm glad I bought this stone, and feel no need, whatsoever, to seek anything else for my bevel (re)setting chores.
