Great finish stone
I use this and the medium stone for sharpening woodworking tools. These stones do not come flat enough to use for planes and chisels and very difficult to flatten. You will need a coarse diamond stone and a lot of elbow grease to get them flat, but once you've done that, they are great stones to use. They cut reasonably fast and the fine stone leaves a great finish. Because of the hardness of the stones, you can easily sharpen curved tools like gouges and knives. You can really feel the bevel lay flat on the stone when honing, and are the best stones for people needing to hone a variety of tools. Had they come flat from the manufacturer, I would have given a 5.
