This 1000x stone is 7" x 2-1/2" x 5/8" mounted to a 8-3/8" x 2-3/4" plastic base that has two non-slip grip pads on the bottom.
An excellent shop stone, it is also ideal for use in the kitchen for sharpening fine cutlery. It gives knives a good edge with just enough "tooth" for good vegetable slicing and meat carving.
Since it uses water as a lubricant, knife sharpening is clean and convenient.
