    Hello everyone! I recently acquired the spyderco double stuff (same material as sharpmaker but in a small flat stone), and i noticed immediately that the brown side was kind of pulverizing, not yet used, it has small pits.
    is this normal? Could you people with sharpmaker or spyderco medium ceramics check it out for me? Under bright light angle your stone and you should be able to see it.
    I thought ceramics do not desintegrate, and this small stone cost 40$, i expect good quality for this price...

    I don't have one of those but that doesn't look like disintegration to me. It looks like a little porosity from the sintering process.

    big deal.
    return to amazon and get a replacement product the next day at no extra charge.

    and no, the pits are not normal

    There is a Spyderco sub-forum here on BF. Might try posting this in there. Good chance Sal himself will see it.

    It doesn't look too bad to me. AT least they are pits, not bumps. If they were sticking up, I would be worried about taking out too much material in certain places. I think that would be OK to use, personally.

    Return it. My stone is without any pits & works great, btw.

    I have the large Brown stone for my Tsprof that I purchased and it's not pitted and it's very smooth.

    Shouldn't be like that. I'd return it to wherever you got it from. :)
