Imagine a natural sharpening stone that cuts quickly, wears slowly, leaves a fine polish and is also relatively inexpensive – the famous Rozsutec stone offers a sweet spot that few others can match.
Used as a splash and go, Rozsutek stone is equivalent to about 9 microns, just on the boundary between a misted finish and a mirror finish. If you give the stone a soak for a few minutes and finish up with clean water and light pressure you'll get the full mirror polish. The resulting edge will easily shave your arm and is adequate for the vast majority of woodworking applications.
Roszutek stone can be used with either oil or water, but it's best to stick to either one or the other. The stones are well cut for natural sharpening stones but will still need the working surfaces dressing before use, a couple of minutes lapping on coarse abrasive should be plenty.
Attractively priced for a fine natural polishing stone, this standard 6x2x3/4 represents outstanding value and will last you the rest of your life.
