    What did you think of the stone and what knives did you sharpen with it?

    I'm not exactly sure actually. That's why I'm passing it around to see what others think.

    Cris told me that it can go up to 8000k (i think) and how it cut depends on how more force you use to sharpen with. So you can use it to set bevels, finish, like an all in one stone.

    I find this very hard to do as a light force /stong force is very subjective and hard to be consistent with. I find that I get a sharper edge with my existing stones but this could be just me not using it correctly.

    I tried it on some stainless and carbons

    one thing is for sure, it's a very hard stone

    Hey Mert,

    I'm sending it to someone in Cairns tomorrow.

    I'll get it sent to you once they finish
