Rated 4 out of 5Â by AnHonestOpinion It does its job well
I've sharpened chisels, hand plane blades, and knives to an exceptional edge on this stone so far.
â¢longer than my previous stone so finding the appropriate angle for the cutting edge and bevel is much easier
â¢comes ready to use with water/oil
â¢2 grades of grit is convenient and gives a better edge
â¢too large to sharpen an axe, I'd recommend a hand held circle stone if you wish to sharpen an axe
â¢has to be re-flattened after time
Overall I would recommend this mostly because of its price and because it can be used straight out of the box.

Very good stone, put a very sharp edge on my old chisels and a hand plane blade. It does need a good soak in oil before use though.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by garyl2 Nice stone but . .
Bought a new stone as I have lost my old trusty! Stone seems fine and does what it should.
Beware - if you read previous reviews they mention that it comes in a plastic box. Not so, mine came in a paper wrapper! To be fair, I couldn't see this in the product description but the reviews did affect my decision.

Pretty useless without a box. I'm taking it back unused.
