Needed to sharpen a few things up
This has finally brought some life back into some knives that have been very neglected. I have a sharpening steel, but nothing like a stone to bring that zing back to the knife. It's a very OCD method to sharpen your knife, but strangely, it is also very therapeutic and you end up loosing track of time when you have more than one knife to sharpen. But the end results is quite impressive. Very glad that I purchased one.
Two Years on, Still going strong
I purchased this combo as my entry level into Japanese Water Stones, I had used sandpaper on glass until then. After half an hour getting used to the feel and realising I did not need to push the blade through the stone to get a good result, I have not purchased sandpaper again. Great saving there alone.. If you are starting out and want a great stone that will last a long time, I would highly recommend this one. Maintenance is easy either on a piece of sandpaper on a flat surface or a diamond plate to keep it flat, (takes literally 30 seconds or less) and you will be taking super fine shavings with chisel or plane, works great on the kitchen knives also.
