You bet. From what I have read they come well prepped but I suppose each batch could be different.

I have not seen this answered or have not searched hard enough but how do I know that I have removed the burr that I think I raised? Will I see evidence of it or feel it? Thanks.

On a low grit edge that you are grinding you can easily feel the burr. Once you drag the edge through a variety of stuff like the deburring block or a piece of wood or just lightly stropping the opposite side of the stone you are working on, you will not feel it anymore.

On high grit stones as I'm completing the job, I can't feel the tiny burr so I drag the knife slowly through newspaper and pay close attention to whether the knife edge gets hung up on the paper at any point. That's usually an indication that there is a burr or other abnormality that needs further attention.
