These King Stones are legitimate Japanese Water Stones made in, you guessed it, Japan. They are extremely versitile and are the highest quality stones I have used. However, there are a few more good companies out there. Water stones are true to the craft of knife honing and sharpening and is a useful skill to teach yourself. I highly recommend watching virtuovice (YouTube Name) on YouTube for excellent tutorials on how to sharpen with stones.

The lower grit stones like the 250 and 400 are great for taking out chips in the blades or reprofiling the edge to fit your needs or preferences. As a camper who beats on knifes and axes, I really need this benefit to take out those chips and these stones do so beautifully.

A good stone grit to breach the gab between the lower grits and the finishing stone is the 1000 grit. This will help smooth out the edge and give it some great sharpness. It also makes finishing the edge with a 3000 or 4000 grit stone an easier and less time-consuming step in the process. Finally, you should use a leather strop with a green and black compound to really get a good edge.

Bottom Line and Reccommending Sharpening System:

1.) 250/1000 grit King Water Stone
2.) 3000 or 4000 grit King Stone
3.) Leather strop with compound

You only really need the 250, 1000, and 3000 (or 4000) grit stones with the strop. I have seen the strop put a better edge than 8000 grit stones. Keep in mind a strop is only 30 bucks or so, and you could almost spend $100 on an 8000 grit stone. This reccommended sytem will make a butter knife scary sharp if you wanted it too. However, the stones are expensive and will loose shape over time depending on how much you use them. But the time you use them will definitely yield better results than a spyderco Sharpmaker (I have one). I also reccommend some sort of a stone holder like the Steelex Sharpening Stone Holder. This works well and makes it easier to work with.

I purchased this after realizing I needed a medium grit stone in between my coarse dry stone and my King Ice Bear 4000 Grit Waterstone. This stone functions flawlessly.

Out of the box (packaged nicely by KORIN) you will get the stone and some instructions in Japanese. Most of it (from reading the Chinese characters in the text that mean the same in Japanese) regards proper use and safety while using, so I think you'd be fine there.

The stone is hefty, more so than you would think. The surface is a lot coarser than my 4000 grit waterstone. One thing to note is that this is a synthetic waterstone, instead of a natural waterstone. This means that this will not produce a slurry like a natural waterstone, will last longer, but cut slower, and is prone to clogging by steel. As I have some time on my hands, I chose this stone.

After getting the basic edge shape done with a coarse dry stone, it was time to refine the edge with this.

To use this stone, one would flood it with water. I run the tap over it until I can see the water stay on top of the stone instead of disappearing within the depths of the stone. First time sharpening this it worked like a charm. During sharpening some red particulates emerge from the surface and float to the top of the water. This is simply the cutting particles coming loose from the sharpening action and floating away after cutting into the metal. I was able to get the previously crap grind on my Cold Steel Frontier Hawk Hickory Handle into a very nice proper axe grind and a very serviceable convex edge in about half an hour.

Color: 1000 Verified Purchase
This stone is about twice as thick as the other stones I purchased at the some time. It is the only one that really needs to be soaked in water for some time before use. I would rate the material quality as very good, the sound the knife blade makes is very consistent and it seems to be wearing quite evenly. To change the profile of the knife edge I start with a 400 grit and then go to this stone followed by a 6000 King stone. I think I will add an additional stone in the 3000 grit range in the future. The 6000 does a nice job a polishing the cutting edge after the 1000 but I think it is too big a step up.

Another nice feature of this stone is that the thickness and lack of a stand allow one to use the side of the stone to sharpen small blades without worry about dishing the deck of the main surface.
