I am very pleased with this stone. 5 stars.
I have been sharpening with softer 800, 1200 and 4k King stones, and this is my first fast-cutting splash-and-go stone.
I bought this stone because it should be able to be used often to touch up my everyday knives, without removing too much material. Very seldom do I need to go back to 1k stones, and starting at 4K is probably too fine for touch-ups. This 2k brought a burr very quickly, and after a bit of stropping on the stone and then on a leather strop w/ green compound, I was very happy with the edges on the 5 knives that I touched up, and in just a few minutes (CrMoV, VG-10, Cobalt steel, and SG2). I'll be difficult to go back to soaking waterstones.
