A great medium grit stone is a must in maintaining quality kitchen knives. This medium grit range is perfect for not only re-setting edges before using finer polishing stones, but also for creating practical, long-lasting edges on workhorse blades. If you were to have only one stone for most kitchen knife maintenance, it would be this grit.
Recommended usage: This is a splash-and-go stone, but would benefit from a 1-2m soak right out of the box. It excels at creating a very toothy edge for almost all types of steels, and offers great feedback It is a medium-hard stone, great for quick touch-up on edges of your daily drivers. It does not create an even finish on a wide bevel, but it is fast at removing hard steel, whilst leaving some scratches on the soft steel.
