As a new knife sharpener, I experimented in different ways to get a nice polish on a budget. This product has helped make my cheap system put nice almost mirror polish on my knives. These are mostly working knives so, I don't need them to actually look like a mirror, but it helps the pocket jewelry aspect and improves cutting ability.
If you have a lansky system and want to push that mirror polished edge this is the stone for you. I have gotten incredible results from this stone, all my knives now easily glide through hair and paper better than any factory edge. After you sharpen your knife this super sapphire will turn your knife into a straight razor.
It will polish the sharpest edge you ever seen and it will look better then factory. DO NOT take sandpaper to this hone. It is supposed to be as smooth as glass and that is why you get a mirrored finish. Not a necessary thing for sharpening actually, this hone just makes a blade edge a bit more polished looking. I would recommend to grind this hone by other fine stone or sandpaper a little, before using on the blade edge. And, keep in you mind, this item provided without a guide rod. Server: new.
