It's not as beautiful as a Krein but it works for me. Since I had ground the ZDP by hand I wanted see how the H1 would cut. It was easier than grinding down the ZDP but still took alot of effort and some skin of the fingers. Gave it a hazy finish from a 800 King like the ZDP. Been carrying it with my Stretch 2. Haven't put it to any test side by side with VG10 but seems to do ok.
