New Cerax works with a wide variety of steel, from Carbon white steel to hard Powder steel.
When you sharpen with Cerax stones you will notice how comfortable, soft and smooth the motions become. This is due to the particles being released from the slurry. While the slurry buffers and polishes your blade, the abrasiveness of the stone cuts metal quickly, getting you a razor sharp finish, faster.
The structure and manufacturing process of the stone is designed so Cerax stones won't concave quickly like ordinary synthetic brick stones.
#280 and #1500 are the best Grit combo for daily sharpening.
A great whetstone for repairing broken tip of my VG10 knife. Only spent less than 10 min to recreate the tip. Good feedback. Highly recommended!
you guys have good collection of double sided stones. 1000/3000 works perfect on my Shun knives.
