Get a piece of 1'x1' or larger glass from the picture frame section of the hardware store ($3) Then get some 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper ($5) Now soak the sandpaper in water for 10-20 minutes before using and then just set the wet sandpaper on top of the glass. Capillary action will keep the sand paper from moving and you can very quickly re-flatten your stone every time you use it. This stone is very soft compared to my Japanese kitchen knives and so it grinds away and creates small pockets fairly quickly. That is why you should flatten it every time before you use it but it is very easy to flatten as well.
This is the exact stone that Master Bladesmith Murray Carter uses in his YouTube video titled "Razor Sharpening"
The size and price of this stone is just about right. It's not a big stone by any means but I'm sure it will last me a few years since I'll only be using it for final polishing.
Only problem I have with this stone is that they printed their King logo and "made in Japan" right on the polishing surface. They definitely interfere with doing the job. After few uses I can see that they will wear out soon but I still think that it wasn't appropriate for them to put the logos right on top surface. My other stone had small ones on the side of the stone and that was no problem at all
The first one I ordered was damaged. I returned to Amazon. It much easier than if I had bought locally, then drive to a local store and try to convince their part time help to refund my money.
I used a machinist block to flatten the surface, and exposed a large internal crack. Not a huge deal, but the crack got worse and worse The farther I went down. It was almost like an internal defect of the stone (which happens), but that alone was a deal breaker.
That said, I was still willing to use this for chisel sharpening, as I dont need the whole stone for that. The performance of this stone was laughable. Getting a slurry was difficult, and it was almost like it had deposits of other minerals or something embedded in the stone, leaving awful scratches and streaks in the metal.
Returned for full refund, and purchased a different king 6000 grit stone which performs far superior to this one.
