Thank you General, I have now been using these stones to sharpen my straight razor. To steal a word from BarnZ, SWEEET!

I don't know how they compare to Japanese Waterstones, but the extra fine can sure slick up the hone on my DOVO!!!

I don't know if anyone would be interested in a "cutout" (thanks Sergius) between a straight razor and the Gillette Mach 3, but I'm thinking of doing one in the next month or so. The results might surprise you!

I have done some informal comparisons already.

I just need to go and read up on Cliff's reviews, and see how to measure stubble depth and density.

Hey swede,
Just curious, where can you find spyderco ceramic benchstones and how much do they cost on average (for something around 2"x6")?

Yes, the knife center is a great source. We also have a factory outlet close by, and that's where I went, I paid around $30 - 40 for each. If I remember correctly, the ultra fine was a little more.

Where is that factory outlet?

It's about 2 miles north of Golden, Colorado (USA) on Hwy 93 on the west side of the road.

There is a previous thread with the phone number and exact address, sorry, I didn't write it down.

I forgot if I told you, but Sal told me that the Ultra stone costs Spyderco hundreds of dollers to make. They lose a lot on each stone, but offer it as a service to customers as part of the range. What a company!

I have used this stone on a couple of blades now and the results have been nothing less than stunning! I cannot see how any knife would not benifit from this stone

Give me a polished edge every time!

I will use my fully serrated Endura for the rope etc!
