Also liked the way this set bundled up for travel. Overall, these are great stones although pricey. They cut quickly on all stainless I have tried (primarily VG 10, ats 34 and 440c) as well as white paper. The 500 and 2k hardly load and a quick rub with hands clean completely. The 16k will put a bright mirror edge and is nice to "strop" with for quick burr removal but does load and requires a little work to clean. Overall they have a smooth feedback characteristic to me. I think I prefer the feed back of my chosera stones being a little more "gritty" but either is a pleasure to use. The choseras are quite a bit thicker and wear characteristics seem about the same but as I have read somewhere else, the coolness factor of the glass stones beats all others.
