This is an excellent synthetic Nagura stone by King Ice Bear. I'm surprised that it's uses have not all been mentioned by previous reviewers as of the posting of this review. I currently am using this Nagura stone with my King Ice Bear 6000 Grit Waterstone.

In short: This is a good Nagura stone, it wears slowly, is synthetic, is around 320 grit, and comes at a decent price, but no Nagura is cheap. There is not a lot to say about this particular Nagura stone, however, I elaborate a bit more below about this Nagura stone, and Nagura stones in general. There seems to be some misconceptions of their uses as I have read on websites in the past.

Nagura stones can do a few things:
For a synthetic sharpening stone such as the King Ice Bear 6000 Grit Waterstone, it creates a slurry that is otherwise not possible with such a ceramic bonded stone, cleans the pores as the low slurry action of the stone by itself is not enough to keep the small pored free of metal, and it helps to keep the stone flat. However, using a Nagura stone on a uneven stone eventually creates unevenness in the Nagura stone itself, which requires flattening as well.

Nagura stones are not meant to be used as a sharpening stone, but rather a sharpening aide to a higher grit stone. For a natural stone Nagura is usually not needed, but aides in increasing aggressiveness of the stone by preparing a slurry prior to sharpening. For a synthetic stone, a Nagura stone is quite necessary. Synthetic stones do not create much slurry, about 10% that of a natural stone in my experience.

This should be used only on stones of 1000 grit or finer or it will eat up the Nagura Stone. Use each of the 4 sides equally to maintain its square shape and flatness. Its use is to clean the fine metal particles from a stone after use re-flatten the cutting stone after use and to create the cutting lather needed for fine sharpening. Use it on a wet stone only, as the water will suspend the particles making it easy to clean the stone you are working on with a cloth. If the Nagura Stone chatters when you push it then the stone you are cleaning is too dry or deformed in some way. If dry then wet it, if the stone is deformed then turn the Nagura stone 45 degrees to the work stone and smooth out the rough places. Remember, always clean the entire stone to keep it flat. Most people have a tendency to start cleaning the stone about a 1/4 of the way in and stop or lighten pressure about 1/4 of the way to the end. This will cause the Nagura to create a sway back effect and make the work stone hard to use. A damp cloth is all that is needed to clean the Nagura Stone itself.

This product works as advertised. I use it on my honing stones and it cleaned out all the black that was stuck in it. Now my straight razors get sharp faster.

I have been sharpening knives for thirty years. This chalk stone is perfect for flattening my fine-grit Japanese waterstone and working up the proper slurry for sharpening!!

The Nagura stone is necessary to keep you fine grit stones to work properly. It creates the cream that you need to sharpen your blades properly.

Used correctly it does it's job very, very well - couldn't be without it...Make a good slurry with it on 4000 grit and above whetstone and it cuts twice as fast.
