I really like this stone. I almost always start with this stone. Cuts super fast on standard stainless steel blades and does it smoothly. It cleans up slight imperfections fast. Wear on the 500 is very very low. I put 12 knives through it just after bought it, leaning hard on some of them, and it shows zero sign of wear.
I sharpen about 1,000 knives per year and this stone is a crucial part of my line up. I am on my third 500 grit Shapton Glass stone. The beauty of these products goes beyond the fact that they excel at knife sharpening. They dish very slowly, they are splash and go, they come perfectly flat and do the job very quickly. I have a knife sharpening business, I have tried a multitude of Japanese Water Stone brands and Shapton Glass come out on top every time. For the average sharpener, this stone will last a very long time. I can't say enough about this product and of course the service.
