This stone is mostly an intermediate step, as jumping straight from 5,000 to 12,000 won’t produce good results. Similar to how using progressive grits of sandpaper requires less labour to produce a good polish, 8,000 grit buffs out scratches from rougher stones, and makes finishing your blade on finer stones an absolute breeze. If your blade is in good shape, this is a good stone to start with.
Knifewear stones are hard, so they last a long time and work quickly.
Always flatten your stone with a truing stone after honing.
