I found the site easy to navigate, payment was quick and painless and the items arrived ridiculously quickly. They were packaged well and I recieved updates about their packaging delivery (almost too many updates, but Canada Post is more to blame there.) Great service over all.
This stone is a great finishing stone for my needs. Leaves a nice toothy edge without being too rough, I use it for touch ups in between sharpening
I'm now into my 11th stone trying out different things and I must admit, this stone is really out of the ordinary. I love it's feeling, it's feedback and it's polishing effect on my blades.
Basically I have replaced my maintenance on knives AND sharpening needs (if not too blunt) by this stone, and I feel like it's going to last forever due to its thickness and very little need to flatten it so far.
It does load up a bit but it's not a big problem imho
This thing is awesome. I just had to own it.. very happy with it. Great general sharpening stone.. I think if you were to just get 1 stone for maintaining sharp knives, this could be a good one if you do it regularly.
Really nice stone
it has a nice silky “bite” to it
and will last a llllong time given its thickness !
