Received this stone from Paul's Finest, in a fast and timely manner. It's a fast cutter and after putting a new bevel on 4 different knives I can't see any noticeable dishing. I was a little apprehensive about how thin the Shapton Glass stones are, but they are super hard and should require thinning too often. The hardness doesn't really affect the feedback and it has a good feel. Overall, just a really good stone. Now I want more Shapton Glass!
