The 250 grit coarse side is used to quickly refurbish a really dull or badly nicked tool. The medium 1000 grit side will remove coarse scratches and prepare the tool for final polishing and honing. KING Waterstones are recognized for their quality and affordability. Stone size: 8" x 2" x 1". Soak in water and keep wet while in use.

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).
This stone is not for finishing. The 250 grit is pretty course and I tend to use it for reshaping jacked knives into a convex edge. I then follow it up with the 1000 and then polish with a 6000.
Things to remember while using it:
1) Let it soak for 15 minutes before use.
2) Leave the stone/water residue on the whetstone while sharpening.
3) Add water as the stone gets dry.
4) Sharpen each side for ~10 minutes.
The 350 Grit Side cuts VERY FAST so be cautious - great for re-profiling a bad blade grind, or just to make things how you like...
The 1000 Grit Side is SOFT and makes a very nice slurry and does a nice job as an intermediate grit as far as I am concerned. Great for averaging a single bevel - or cleaning up after the 350 in preparation for finishing with a higher grit - good scratch pattern - useful stone... I do believe that it will wear fast because it is on the soft side of things.
At the price, simple and painless to replace.
