- Stones may need flattening with some frequency.
I do a lot of hand work a lot of sharpening. For my working chisels and blades this is the lowest grit I use and it has seen a fair bit of use. The cutting action is good and the stone wears well (doesn't wear too quickly). I think the #1000 Norton is a bit more coarse than the King brand #1000. I have both and like/recommend both. I prefer the larger Norton size for some tools.
