I have a 1000 & 6000 grit stone. It works great. But I feel my blade angles are all over the place. I seem to end up using the Lansky kit and then the 6000 to finish it.Don't be afraid of stones. They do work.
Could you circumcise a gnat with it?I have one of these Lansky kits. It does a pretty darn good job honestly. I have a hatchet sharp enough to scare the hell out of you I did with it. I mean it's really fucking sharp.
