Really good quality, really bad value.
I was really excited to receive this stone, as it was to be my first 8000 grit stone (which is supposedly 3 microns). I was extremely disappoint to find that the edge it put on your knife was equal to that of a 2000 grit stone which if had bought one of it would have cost me $30 instead of $100. There are saw marks where the stone was cut but that doesn't bother me cause I use it for bushcraft, camp, and survival knives. I really enjoy how you only need to coat the stone in water to sharpen it instead of soaking it for ages like some other stones. I would definitely recommend against buying this stone unless you are prepared to spend $100 on a 2000 grit stone.

Fact to be noticed about Belgian coticule
I write from a place where it is a pink translucent arkansas wich is 'exotic', not this well known yellow coticule from my belgian neighbours ;) To be noticed : for straight razors only or wedge profiled japanese kitchen knives, or 'light' dead-end finishing touch on knives for experienced user, as flatness of the stone itself can be damaged if used for a dull 8+ randall blade reaching 30degrees .... This stone by Boker is in the middle + category of the quality ranking for belgian coticule; immaculate light yellow can be found but prices are sky-rocketting quickly when size and quality improve. sharpening this way can be addictive quickly as, with time, you learn how to 'custom' your own grit with the good amount of water (in spray) an a small piece of rich coticule. you'll reach the best from your blade, before mirror polishing by naked leather strops. By itself, can totally transform your experience in shaving.
