The Pride Abrasive 3000 Water Stone is the lowest grit to be considered a finishing stone. It provides a finished edge for many sharpening applications.
Like the lower grit stones, it removes steel at a very fast rate. We have never seen another stone is this class remove steel as quickly yet still leave such a nice polish. It is fast enough that you can jump directly from the 220 or 400 stone. It will quickly remove the scratches from these coarser grits. 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.
