King NEO is a splash-and-go 800 grit stone from Matsunaga Stone Co. that is specifically formulated for stainless steel. Despite its designation as the stainless stone we've found it to be effective on a wide variety of steels including simple and more complex carbon as well as stainless including but not limited to White 1 and 2, Blue 1, 2 and Super, R2, ZDP-189 and HAP40. This stone almost feels like a soft medium-grit natural stone in use, similar to an Aoto. This stone wears a little faster compared to some other splash-and-go choices such as Shapton or Suehiro Debado SNE but slower than most soaking stones. Sharpening hardened steel alone yields very little mud while incorporating soft cladding/thinning into the sharpening will readily yield a medium-thickness mud with moderate pressure.
