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 soaking stone, which excels in creating an even and consistent wide bevel polish in mere minutes. It has a great feedback, and generates a ton of slurry, meaning flattening with an ATOMA often is a must for consistent result. We recommend this stone for busy sharpeners that want fast polishing results for wide-bevel knives such as debas and some gyutos.
