Product Description

Steelex Japanese Deluxe Water Stone, 1200 Grit D1069

From the Manufacturer

To achieve a surgically sharp edge on your tools, nothing works faster or better than Japanese Water Stones. The abrasive slurry produced on top of the stone cuts aggressively and polishes the blade as it sharpens. If you've never tried sharpening with water stones before, you'll be astounded by the results.

Style Name: 6000 Grit Verified Purchase
First off, when I bought this stone, it was cheaper - I spent about [...] on it (I don't remember if that included shipping). So its not as good a deal now, but maybe the price will go down again.

What I got when I opened the packaging was in fact the 6000 grit large Suehiro stone (to clarify, this is NOT the same as the 5000 grit Suehiro Rika stone, which I haven't tried but many people seem to like). I don't know why it is not marked as such, and I doubt this was a shipping error - I suspect that this product is not listed as such for some sort of licensing reason. The product pictured sure looks like my stone. At any rate, this review will assume that others are getting the same product as me - the Suehiro stone.

I know that these stones have not been favored by a lot of knife enthusiasts since Dave Martel (big sharpener) said he didn't like them a few years ago. But I didn't know that at the time I bought this. And I have to say, these aren't bad at all. They put a nice finish on a stone if you don't go any higher. They work reasonably fast. They dish slowly and are easy to flatten when wet. Feedback isn't perfect but it's not bad.

Pros:
Decent finish from a 6000 stone.
Dishes slowly - slower than a comparable King stone.
Fairly quick polishing.

Cons:
Feedback is only okay.
Needs a pretty long soak to work well - at least 15 minutes, 20-30 is better.
Very easy to gouge.

At the price listed, you might as well go buy a Naniwa Superstone. At the price I bought it, this was a good deal for a good stone.

This was my first Japanese waterstone.

Some things I didn't realize before I purchased:
1) It's recommended that the stone is kept immersed in water during storage. Otherwise, soak it for 15 minutes in water before use.

2) It's much softer than a traditional whetstone.

3) Honing oil will destroy it.

4) It's much larger than I expected (good).

My first test was on a Mora knife of 57 HRC (advertised). There was quite a bit of slurry produced in the initial sharpening. Unfortunately, the Mora had shipped with a edge burr that was not easily removed with this stone. I went back to a traditional 800 grit stone and removed the burr, then went back and finished with the Japanese waterstone. It gave a very good edge, probably as good as a higher grit with a traditional stone.

I also used it on some Wenger SAKs and it performed well.

This is very fine wet stone. Requires care in use. If you are a person who just wants to sharpen your knife in 2 seconds this product is not for you. For one this it is recommended that the stone is placed constantly in water, or at the very least for 15 minutes before every use. You cannot use oil on this stone because it will ruin the stone (thus the name). On the positive side it sharpens the knife very finely and I have very good experince with it thus far.

First off, I am a sushi chef that has worked in the business for 4 years. I have owned Japanese style sushi knives, traditional chef knives, santokus, gyutos, debas, and small knives.

This stone is not great. It's not horrible, but for a japanese whet stone at medium grit, it wears away relatively quick. Granted, I did not use a nagura stone when I sharpened, but after 30 min of sharpening one of my knives, I could feel the stone beginning to bow in the middle, even as I made sure to sharpen across the whole surface of the stone. The stone's slurry isn't a great quality and the metal ground away from the knife doesn't really stay on the whetstone. It's important for a stone to have a good slurry with metal mixed in for the benefit of your knife, but I feel like there are better options than this stone.

I am not a professional knife sharpener, I learned how to sharpen my knifes on my own, so some people may disagree with what I think. If you feel I have said something that is incorrect, please contact me and I am willing to learn.

Don't get me wrong, this stone works, and I was able to develop a fine and sharp edge on my knives, but I simply think that other Japanese whet stones, such as King Brand Deluxe Waterstone, 1000 Grit are less likely to wear away as much when sharpening. In the end, I feel that for a few dollars more, you can get longer usage out of a different whetstone.

For those that have only a few knives and do not sharpen them very much, I think this is a good stone to learn with. It's a soft stone that is lenient on a knife edge and blade. For learning purposes, I recommend this one. You probably won't get to the point of sharpening as frequently as me for a few years. But for professional use I prefer others.

If you want to put a very fine polish on your blade this is the stone for you. I used this an have made knives scary sharp!!! If you are a perfectionist and want to be certain that you have the best tools and sharpest knives on the block get this and show them how you roll. I suggest you have some experience/practice with a harder stone because this one is kind of soft and easy to knick up. Also, in the product image there is a very nice looking wooden base that I thought would come with this product. That was not the case. It is a plastic base. The stone is pretty expensive and I did expect more but once I used the stone I was so happy with the results that I still gave it 5 stars. I do suggest that the product image be updated.
