Saicom Corporation has designed a new series of stones that produce a higher level of hardness, carbide, and abrasion resistance for the modern day. Saicom understands chefs need to sharpen their knives as efficiently and effectively as possible and as such this new series of stones incorporate a higher level of abrasiveness to achieve a consistent finish in minimal time.
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.
