Nice stone for the price

This is a nice whetstone, especially for the price. The guides are magnetic and flip over for a different angle. The base catches water to keep your workspace dry and the no skid pad for the stone keeps it stable while you work. Easy to use and results are sharp!

Works perfect with the new culinary line!

Excellent size for the new culinary knives from MKC. Other sizes offered by MKC are much more portable - this one should go on the bench. Watch the MKC videos on sharpening and go to work with this stone.

Overall great!

Comes exactly as described. I only docked a star because one of the rubber feet was missing from the base. I hoped it just fell on in transit but there was no sign of it in the box or package. I also docked a star because it was not sufficient to sharpen a cheap kitchen knife that was quite dull. This could be chalked up to novice skills but after an hour of meticulous and careful sharpening it still couldn’t cut paper or vegetables with considerable force. More a testimony to the junk knife, but still disappointing.

Great Sharpener!

I haven't had to use it on my MKC yet, but it works great on my kitchen and other EDC's. Knowing that MKC endorses it gives extra confidence in the quality.
