I purchased a 16,000 shapton from another vendor, and from reading the reviews and comments regarding lapping the shapton with any diamond stone, I gave it a shot with a stone I already had. It was with great difficulty to get it flat, suctions, sticking. Everywhere I looked the DGLP was always a little too expensive. I finally managed to find Pauls finest website, had a browse around and notice the DGLP was on sale. Added it to my cart with some other stones, and ordered right away.
Followed the instructions, and right away used the DGLP on my already used 16,000, and woah, what a freaking difference. I could not believe what I had just experienced. No sticking whatsoever, and very little suction.
I will definitely be coming back to Pauls finest to expand my sharpening gear, because Paul literally is quick with email responses himself, and leaves no one hanging. If his customer base grows that might not sustainable, but rightfully so. Top shelf customer service.
