 Re: Knife sharpening systems

I have more or less the same stone of Chinese manufacture, though mine is glued to a 3000 grit stone on the reverse. I'm skeptical that it is actually 10000 of anything, but it is fine enough to maintain a good edge (when I'm not using my Midwest Musical Imports sharpening steel).

Interesting that you are using it dry. I have not tried that. Do you find it better than wet, or is it just out of convenience that you don't soak it?

The only complaint I have with my stone is that it came with a brand stamped on the fine side in paint, which I had to then grind off with my diamond stone before I could use its full length.
