I have Japanese knives that require a whetstone. After A LOT of shopping around, I found Vie Belles and this item. Getting it was a bit of a fiasco as they didn't have the item yet and production of the first batch was rejected by Vie belles due to quality issues. I finally got my whetstone from the new production batch (I got the production sample as I had been waiting for many months and wanted the whetstone as soon as possible. It arrived, I've used it (with my Nagura stone - to make slurry) and have been happy with the results. I'm giving the product a 5, but the experience was less than a 5 due to lack of communication from Vie Belles about delays and inability to update me when delays got extended. Maybe it's just growing pains, but I'd advise Vie Belles to do better on setting customer expectations on delivery and initiating communication with customers when there are delays.
Having dropped my 5000 grit stone and smashed it I was in need of a replacement. This one most definitely fits the bill and is doing a great job on my carving chisels and gouges.
Very good quality. I just need to improve my whetstone technique!
I've seen the light. I have always used Whetstones on my knives, for many years but of a lower grit. Switching up to this higher calibre was a first for me, and as it's a bit pricey I took a chance on this. I was NOT disappointed.
These are superior quality whetstones that will provide many years of sharpening pleasure. I use this for final polishing of the blade edge prior to stropping, and it has worked well so far!
