The Pride Abrasive 10000 Water Stone creates a very high polish. It provides an incredibly polished edge on knives and tools and is the grit even the most discerning woodworkers and straight razor are satisfied with.
Even at this very fine grit level it removes steel at a very fast rate. It is definitely the hardest of the Pride water stones and rarely needs to be flattened. The 10,000 grit cuts faster than a leading Japanese manufacturer by about 1.5 times yet provides the mirror polish you expect from a 8000 grit stone. It is fast enough that you can jump directly to it from the 6000 or 8000 grit. If you are progressing from a 6-8k stone, you will only need to take a minimal number of passes to remove the scratches.
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.
