Purchased this stone to put the final polish on my chisels and planes. This stone is silky smooth, a joy to use and does the job! Now I’m ready to make wood shavings. A shout out to Rob Cosman’s video on using Shapton stones.
Fantastic stone, only very light pressure is needed to sharpen. Works very well free hand as well. Thanks rob Cosman for the recommendation
Not that long ago sharpening stones of this level weren't available - I now sharpen going from a 1000 grit diamond stone and on to the 16000 grit, it's fast it's easy, it leaves my tools with a fantastic edge.
