    5Great for Getting Chisels Back to Work
    By Marv
    New to the wet-stone sharpening concept, but I picked up a bucket full of old garage sale chisels and a little patience and help from Robert Larson 800-1800 Honing Guide had me up and running in no time.

    I give it a 20 minute soak in room-temp water and continue to wet by squeezing a rag every half-dozen passes. It seems to work best with a bit of standing water allowing it to generate a slurry that is most effective. The honing guide allows me to put solid pressure which works effectively. I'm not overly concerned with sheen or presentation, so the 250/1000 combo fits my needs great to sharpen back to perfect functionality. It's easy to bring them back sharper than they are new.

    One other thing I'll note: I found this to be incredibly relaxing. Turned on some music and tuned up 4 or 5 chisels in an hour. A bit of a meditative experience that I really enjoyed, of course that's why I hang out in my tiny basement shop anyway. King products are great and I would purchase again and likely will buy other varieties! (And eventually one of those re-grading blocks to re-flatten the stones themselves).

    5Good quality stone.
    By Mr. Cole Pfeiffer
    Great quality whetstone didn't come broken or with chip marks.I love the lower grit. Most stone are a combination stone that have a 1000 grit and 6000 or so, this one has 250/1000 grit combo. I only use the 250 grit for making a minor touch ups on the bevel or a for reprofiling a knife. I checked it out to see it it was flat and it is, no need to flatten the stone. I use the 1000 grit for touching up my knives and works good. I never use it dry always leave it in water for a few minutes and then i can use it.

    3Beginner/beater stone.
    By C-Rad
    Beginner, easy product.
    For basic blades and sharpening.
    It is pretty gritty and if not taken care of crumble.
    I would not use it on anything special or higher end cutlery/knives, but if you just need something to help get an edge on a beater knife or tool this is an ok product.
