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 1000 grit Power Select II is a vitrified stone with silicon carbide as the main abrasive. This stone stands out among others in this line as one of the fastest-cutting stones among comparable stones in its grit range. The structure is quite open and porous and benefits from a short soak, although we've found that simply running water over it for 30 seconds or so is generally sufficient. It cuts very effectively with minimal pressure and its bind is on the weaker end of the spectrum so it's recommended to use just enough pressure in order for it to cut the steel effectively to avoid excessive dishing. This stone was very effective on all steels we tested including Sukenari's HAP40 at 68HRc as well as Honyaki single-bevel knives in the 65-66 range.
