This grit is great for starting a dull edge, and more minor repairs. The texture is rough enough to cut steel quickly, but smooth enough to give a shaving edge that can easily be polished on finer stones. While not everybody requires one, they are great for collectors and folks that restore vintage blades.
Naniwa Professional stones are harder than most, so they stay flat better and last much longer than cheaper options. This stone is also great for finishing most hunting knives.
Always flatten your stone with a truing stone after honing.
