Its an awesome stone, cuts surprisingly fast and leaves a very nice mirror polish. I use it as a finishing stone and I dont strop afterwards to keep some of the teeth.

Agreed. Hard, quick cutting stone that leaves a great edge. Don't soak it though as it can crack.

Easily my favorite 8k stone. No need for a soak, just a quick run under water. Very little clogging, great finish, fast but not too fast that you have to worry about burnishing the edge. When you start getting above 4k, you are polishing on a much finer level and things can become delicate. A stone that is too fast may do bad things if you wobble a bit, so something a little slower is just a tad more forgiving to the human touch IMO.

Just received the stone, only used it for stropping and deburring what I normally do on a Chosera 5k after full sharpening on a Chosera 2k. Got very toothy edges, probably some stuff was left with the 5k, or I rounded the edge when deburring on the 5k, and it got corrected. Very pleasant feedback.

Can anyone compare this to the Shapton pro 8k?

About the Snow White I can add that it allows a very easy cutting of a microbevel, and the resulting edge has much more bite than with a Chosera 5k. Thanks for your reactions so far.
