The Pride Abrasive 1000 Water Stone is an all-purpose grit. It provides a finished edge for many day to day cutting tasks and is the most popular grit sold.
Like the other Pride stones, it removes steel at a very fast rate. We have never seen another 1000 grit water stone remove steel as quickly yet still leave such a sharp edge. It is fast enough that you can use it to repair damaged and worn blades and fine enough to leave a finished working edge for many everyday cutting jobs. You can progress directly from the 220 or 400 stone or use it as a stand alone stone.
Pride Abrasive water stones are well priced, sharpening quickly, hold up well and leave an edge you expect from a premium water stone.
They are in a class with high grade Japanese waterstones like Sigma and Shapton Glass Stones. They perform better than Norton, Bester/Imanishi, Chosera and cheaper imported stones.
Having sharpened with every major brand of water stone, we can say the Pride water stones deserve to be classed with the best of them. Their combination of speed, durability and finish is as good or better than any we have used.
They cut premium tool steels like A2, D2, O1 quickly and their finish is what you should expect from their given grit level.
Like any good water stone, they should be soaked in water for 10-15 minutes prior to use.
You will not be disappointed with this water stone. Made in Bristol Wisconsin, USA.
