1 people found this review helpfulAfter seeing Takeda-sans sharpening video and another video of the making of his knives (his staff is in the background actually using these stones), and after feading many reviews about the knife edges that the Takeda knives demonstrated from the factory, I felt that I must give this a try. While I have a full set of Shapton stones it is impossible to take these on the road with me. This set of stones fills the bill for travel and taking to the cooking classes which I teach. In sharing this with my students, I found them able to pick up the "reverse engineering" skills quickly and easily. The edge that this system gives is not as good as that which my Shaptons deliver, but it allows someone without my training and perseverence to get a quality edge without spending a fortune and without having to spend hours upon hours developing the skills that using a professional set of stones requires. Well done Takeda-san and thank you Mark for making this available in th US of A.
