Pros: Durability, Ease of Use, Effectiveness, Overall Quality
Cons: None
The other day they had these stones on sale for $.99 cents. I bought two. One came as a white hard Arkansas stone and the other a dark brown Arkansas stone. These must be seconds, but that does not harm their sharping ability. The stones have small pin holes in them in various places. I guess that’s what makes them seconds. What I did was fill in the pin holes with super glue and then the next day hone them with hone oil and a diamond hone. Then they are flat and true and the small imperfections are filled and they sharpen a knife slick as a dog’s tooth. These are very good buys if you are short on money like most of us are now in this “Recession/depression”.

Works Great
This is a great Budget Whetstone. Sure there are better ones but for the money this one is great and works as long as you wanna do the work.

Useful sharpener
This stone is a little softer than the white hard Arkansas that I am used to, but it is still a nice and handy stone. It is fine enough to give a nice, fine-grained sheen to a sword blade, as well as a sharp edge. I was a little surprised when, on a more angled stroke, I was able to raise dust off the stone, which I was using dry at that time. This indicates some softness. Still, this stone was economically priced, it gives an edge not much different from my older stone, and it seems to hold up well (finishing the steel far more than eroding the stone) if I don't actually cut into it. I'm very satisfied with what this stone is and does, even if it doesn't seem quite as dense as the hard white that my dad bought me in 1968.
