Pros: Effectiveness, Overall Quality, Ease of Use
Great stone for the price
I bought this stone for three bucks, and it's probably the best value I've ever gotten on a sharpening implement. It puts a nice smooth edge on my knives. It takes very little time to have all my blades push cutting receipt paper as if it isn't even there. I feel like this stone has just the right amount of aggressiveness. Stropping afterward doesn't hurt though. I'm actually buying a couple more soon, in case I lose or drop or gift one.
