"OK but not for top flight knives"
21 January 2016
The coarse side is 240 grit and the fine side is 800 grit. This is fine if you are working with cheap hard stainless steel blunt knives and you will restore a cutting edge, but not sharp enough to glide through tomatoes or paper. Do not use this stone with expensive knives such as Global; you are likely to damage the edge. Use a stone with 1000/3000 grit or higher for your global knives
A note from the team
Thanks for taking the time to write your review. The Lakeland Whetstone is suitable for reviving blunt knives and keeping knives in good condition. If you want to finish off your Global knife to the highest level it's best to end on a superfine whetstone of 2000-3000 grit or contact the manufacturer of the knife for advice.
