#1000/#6000 Grit Waterstone - Large
Write Review  Product Details

Chad  North Carolina, United States of America  1/2/2015

Bought this stone sometime around September, I think, and have used it to sharpen most of the knives in the house. Works great for not having any experience with water stones. Can get a nice edge on the knives if they keep em or not is a different story. Would easily buy another one after I use or lose this stone. If you do buy any water stone be sure to buy a lapping stone for when the stone(s) start to cave on you. The only reason I gave this a 4 is because of my inexperience with water stones I am personally unsure if this is the best stone out there. However if you have never used one you will enjoy the sharp edges it can make.

Great Stone

I have used this stone for 5 yeas now. The 6000 grit side polishes very nicely and is nice and uniform in composition. Sometimes I finish up with a finer stone but even when I don't, the shine left by this stone is very nice. The 1000 grit side is perfect for initial sharpening unless a knife is very dull. Then I use a diamond benchstone before going the 1000 grit side. For a nice gritty edge that is still razor sharp one can just skip the 6000 grit side and strop the blade on a belt. Overall, I have been very impressed with this combination stone.

this is a perfect intermediate stone. when sharpening my knives start with a 250 grit stone then I use this one and finish with a 8000 grit. this stone's larger size will last a longe time even for a professional chef like me.
