***Knowing how to sharpen a knife is a skill that must be learned, I do not recommend purchasing this if you do not currently know how to use it OR do not intend to learn. You will only ruin your knives, or at best, require the assistance of a professional to repair them.***

This 12" non-natural stone is ideal for replacing an edge on your cutlery or sharpening tools such as axes or pruning sheers. It can be used with oil, if you use it, plan to use it, or even would ever consider using it on a piece of cutlery that MIGHT contact food, DO NOT USE INDUSTRIAL OILS! ONLY USE FOOD GRADE MINERAL OIL. It can also be used with water very well, adding a few drops of household dish detergent to the water will help it stay with the stone and reduce some friction as well as aid in keeping the stone clean/free of metal particles. Out of the box, the stone should be "dressed", this can be done with a dressing stone or with the blade of some old tool... ax, lawn mower blade, etc. before using it on an expensive knife.

This stone cuts quickly and is ideal for the ultra-wear-resistant German stainless steel used to produce some of the worlds most renowned cutlery, Wusthof, Henckel, etc and will allow you to repair and resharpen your knives quickly. I would avoid this stone for use with any knife of Japanese make, the steel such knives are made from is very susceptible to wear and should not be sharpened on *whet* stones any courser than 750 grit, the grit of this stone is improvidently 80/150grit.

Pros:
1) Large at 12" long
2) Hard, very slow to wear, with proper care, the average person will get a few lifetimes out of this stone.
3) Easy to clean and maintain.
4) Consistent, even texture through out the stone.
5) Heavy...

I have several abused knives with terrible edges on them, and this stone is exactly what I needed. The stone I received is grey and black and marked Winco #83, not purple like the one pictured. The black side is very coarse for removing a lot of metal quickly. The grey side is medium, not what I would call fine.

After some practice with a couple junk knives, I was able to restore a proper bevel to the edge of my kitchen and pocket knives. Then all it took was a little finishing with my hard Arkansas stone to put a sharp edge on them.

I would not buy this as your only stone, as the "fine" side is not fine enough for finishing. However, the size made it easy for a novice sharpener like myself to get a good bevel. Buy this stone, and another fine one for finishing, and you will be set.

Final thought: This thing is a sponge, and will absorb a ton of water. I definitely would not use oil on it.

Arrived in one piece, which was my main concern. Not the best stone I have ever used, but for the price, it's awesome.

Once I got it into my kitchen, I was able to sharpen all of my knives, from cheap stamped metal ones all the way up to my set of professional Wusthof knives from back in my days in fine dining, in short order. This thing is huge (which is why I bought it), making it easy to get nice, long, smooth strokes with longer blades. I was even able to reshape an old paring knife with a broken point into something that resembled its original shape fairly quickly without gouging or otherwise damaging the stone. The only bad thing I could say is that the "fine" side is still relatively coarse, but I was still able to shave (Literally. My wife kind of freaked out when she saw me doing it) with my knives after putting them on this stone followed by a quick trip over a steel to smooth everything out.

To address some of the concerns I saw in the low-star reviews and was worried about before I bought this:

-It is heavy, but it will certainly slide around if you just put it on a counter top. Wring out a wet dish towel, fold it over once, then lay the stone on top of that to get a better base to work with. I had no problem keeping it in place with this technique

-Both sides were flat and properly usable out of the box. I may have gotten a "good" one, so this may still be a concern

-To those who claim that this stone is not usable for putting a good edge on kitchen knives or that it is only good for garden tools, I have a kitchen full of razor-sharp knives of all sizes and qualities, including my Wusthofs, that say otherwise. I would not hesitate to put any knife on this stone.

This thing is fragile. The bottom corner of the course side broke off during shipping, but doesn't affect the ability to sharpen.

What DOES affect the ability to sharpen is the uneven surface. Its a molded stone and the corners of the mold are higher then the center portion of the stone. Eventually (will update when it happens) the edges should wear down, but for now I get an uneven surface resulting in an unevenly sharpened blade.

First the downside: when it comes the surface is uneven and needs to be "broken in" with some object you don't care about (I used scissors).

The rough grit makes quick work of sharpening my knives. I give them a few finishing strokes on the fine grit, but for home cooking I don't need a perfectly tuned edge. For a cheap sharpening stone, it does the trick.
