Saicom Corporation has designed a series of stones specifically for the high-hardness, high-carbide, highly abrasion resistant tool steels of the modern day. Each stone is manufactured with a high concentration of quality abrasive in a logical progression order of grits in order to achieve an event, consistent finish in as little time as possible.
The 3000 grit Power Select II is a resin-bound alumina stone. The stone may be used as a splash-and-go stone but does benefit from a short soak and may be permanently soaked which will change the feeling during use; the bond will weaken a bit and it will release fresh abrasive more readily. This stone has a high concentration of abrasive and provides aggressive cutting speed relative to its grit rating. Loading is not a large issue but if you notice more than you would like, it's helpful to generate slurry with either a nagura or diamond plate.
