To put it bluntly..My dad got this but it did not come with honing guide and truth is it's HORRIBLE to use, im not sure if it's like 100/150 grit, way more coarse than should be allowed to be called a "sharpening" stone, the surface is brittle and breaks up easily when moving chisel on the bevel side , it seems to take WAY TOO MUCH off the edge of chisels and doesn't "feel" good to sharpen with. Im not sure if it's super coarse or bad material choice but one thing is certain you WON'T get any edge whatsoever and there is nothing more frustrating than a blunt chisel that will crack and splinter your wood instead of smooth, easy cutting . The stone is good for nothing, avoid like the plague

AVOIDBadly designed, very easy to get out of alignment and skew the blade, avoid at all costs!
