    The "Green Brick", is it really "all that"?

    The "Green Brick", is it really "all that"? Seeing many raves about this stone. I have a Gesshin 2k and a Shapton Pro 2k already, is there still room for one of these guys in my line up?

    I sold my Pro 2k to buy this stone because of all the rave. I was not disappointed.

    I hated mine. It seemed to work better on cheap stainless and soft (European) carbon. I guess it just depends on what you like. I get better bite from a 5k Gesshin.

    That is exactly how I felt about it. Lots of people seem to like it a lot though so I guess we all have different tastes.

    its a good stone if youre on a budget. i didnt like mine but like brad said it does leave a nice toothy edge. and it makes quick work of sharpening stainless.

    +2 I've really only used this on softer stainless, for which it works well. However, it has a strange feel, gouges SUPER easy, dishes quickly and has strange feedback.

    It's okay stone. I do not like that it very easy to gouge as mhlee points out, if you got a little wobble you got a gouge. On a bright side it polish pretty well and leaves nice shiny finish.
    I am actually thinking in getting Gesshin or Shapton as a substitute.

    I use it jumping from a low grit on soft stainless. Sometimes use it to clean up scratches after thinning on soft stainless.
    I don't like anything else about it.

    Although I sold mine to move on to a splash and go set up, I would say it's a great touch up stone, as it has a great balance of light cutting ability and polish.
