I can’t say enough good about these stones. I have a medium and a fine. The fine I have had for over a year and I use it on a regular basis and it still shows no ware. With the fine I can take my tools edge to a mirror finish.
The thing I like about using ceramics is that it is clean. You do not have to use water or oil on these stones. For clean up I use a rubber pencil eraser just like we used in school. And if it gets to bad I use a little water, Comet and a green scouring pad.
I have used diamond stones and they worked great till I wore the diamonds off the stone. I have looked at some of the newer diamond products but with my experience from the past of how these ware I am leery of putting out that kind of money.
Side Note: All ceramic stone are not the same. I have seen where some of the experts talk down about the ceramics and say you have to resurface or flatten these stones, that is most likely because they have stones that are put together with some sort of composite materials which brake away when you use it. Global makes a stone like that and they are not worth the shipping.
