Pros: Effectiveness, Ease of Use, None
Smith's 6" Fine Ceramic Stone
I own many quality stones including the large Spyderco ceramics. The surface of this stone was flatter than the spyderco and the abrasive properties of this stone were nearly comparable as well. For the money ($2.98), this is the best value on the market. With this stone and a good duel compound strop, you will get a scary sharp edge. Buy more than one to save on shipping; because, once you've used this stone you'll be going back for more.
