This is the stone I start with right off of the grinder or when I need to turn a burr quickly. Two or three strokes of an edge tool is all it takes to cut a new edge and turn that burr. My stone was perfect right out of the box - as flat as can be! I also own The Pinnacle Hard Black Arkansas stone. My initial impression was not as favorable with that stone (read my review).
It Works...Very Well
I sharpen both gouges and plane irons on it
