This sharpening stone is intended for us in the Edge Pro sharpening system. Because the sharpening stone is only half an inch wide (1.3cm) it is very suitable for sharpening a knife with a curved blade. The curve of the blade is much easier to follow on a narrow stone than on a wide one. This sharpening stone is not mounted on the aluminum base plate which you need to clamp it into the Edge Pro sharpening system. This base plate can be ordered separately as an accessorie.
The grit size can not be directly compared to the grit sizes of Japanese water stones. Use therefore the table given here.
