This is a great product, you get a stone with 2 fine grits for the price of a single stone (or less)! As with everything, you have to be able to use it correctly for it to work for you. For people who are experienced in knife sharpening, you can skip the help below, just buy it! :)

As the instructions are not in english i'll post a little general introduction information which may help some people understand the product and the process:
Stone: red:1000 grit, tan:3000 grit. 1000 grit is medium-fine, 3000 is fine. Grits can go much finer, eg. 6000 grit is common, people use it to get silly/razor sharp edges and even higher grits exist.

Note that understanding the sharpening medium is important: ensure the stones/sharpening steel, etc that you have will be applicable to your knives. Some very 'hard' knives may not sharpen at all on your medium do what you will!

Use: As its a WhETstone, submerse the stone in water for 5 to 10 minutes and maintain the stone wet during use. It's the slur on top of the stone that sharpens the knife (its an abrasive, working in a similar manner as CIF liquid does in a bathroom or TCut on car paintwork!). Any grey appearing on top of the stone is metal being taken from the knife.
Grits: 1000 is already for a not too blunt but not quite sharp knife. 3000 is just to polish it and give it a finish.
Angle: More than the angle itself, its most important to pick an angle and stick with it as precise as possible. The more hardwearing edge requires a wider angle, but a finer cutting edge requires a narrow angle. Very fine blades: 11º, outdoor knives and meat cleavers: 25º.

Very quick and easy to use and produces brilliant results. I have a set of cheapish knives and with about 10 minutes work each they are now very sharp - certanly for home use.

The instructions are in Japanese but that didn't matter. There are lots of tutorials on the web showing you what to do. The dark red is course and the yellow is finer for polishing.

I guess this is a bit finer grit than i first thought it'd be. Takes quite a few stokes to make a difference. On the cotrary it takes alot to mess upp the edge too! Also it gives it a pretty good cutting edge, suitable fo kitchen knifes and other meat cutting tools.

Im a novice at sharpening, but i think this kind of quality equipment is a necessity to have if any kind of serious sharpening/refurbishing is to be carried out.

For amatures that are learning, id say.

An excellent way to really sharpen up knives properly and professionally. But you might want to nick down to your local DIY store and buy a chep chisel sharpening whetstone and try that out on your knives first. The process and technique is the same and you'll get a very good edge even with a cheap DIY version for £5. The point is, if you are not prepared to put the effort in to sharpen using a cheap whetstone you are definately not going to suddenly get enthusiastic because you spent 7x more on this one. Try before you buy. But this is the way to super sharp knives, a straight edge one that will cut bread slices to an 1/8" iwithout crumbling and cut meat super thinly or very easily. The key issue is that this is the way to shapen knives the way the pros do it and sharp knives are much safer than struggling and forcing a blunt one to do the job. Be careful how you store the knives after sharpening - they will be as sharp as a razor blade.

This quote is from other site selling same whetstones
1000/3000 - This stone has a fine 1000 grit (red) and an extra fine 3000 grit side (tan). If you are patient, this can sharpen even a very dull knife. However, where this stone really shines is in maintaining your knives and tools. The 1000 grit side quickly refines a moderately dull end and the 3000 grit side will hone this edge to a very nice edge.

I hope that helps. I was trying to buy this procut but sadly they do not ship it to where i live

Great combination of grits, a good stone I will use a lot when sharpening my knives, unfortunately is major flaw is that it is very soft and will get damaged easily and wear away very easily... Nevertheless great for the price paid for it, bargain.

Amazing edges on everything I have sharpened, using a hatchet to cut paper. Instructions are next to useless but how dificult is it to work out how to use?

Good quality, reasonable price. Unfortunately I am not as proficient in using it as I would like to be. None of my knives become razor sharp.
