Is anyone here using these?
I am buying them regardless haha but would appreciate some feedback.
Here is a video of Ray Mears using them.
No the grit is much finer. I use an 8,000 grit to sharpen my razor. An Arkansas stone is way too crude for that.These are basically the same thing as an Arkansas stone. (I would not be the least bit surprised if they actually were.) They have the same pro's and con's of any whetstone.
