CBN (cubic boron nitride)
 is a generic name, there are also other names of this material, depending on manufacturer: borazon, elbor, cubonite, etc. 
CBN (cubic boron nitride) is the second-hardest material after diamond,  and has the best price-performance ratio for processing steels, comparing to other materials, including diamond, silicon carbide or aluminum oxide.  
Due to it's high resistance specs, CBN can be used dry without lubricant. This makes CBN the cleanest of the available sharpening stones.  

Length: 150 mm = 6 inch
Width:   25 mm x = 1 inch
Total thickness:  7 mm = 0.28 inch
CBN thickness:    3 mm = 0.12 inch
Blank thickness: 4 mm = 0.16 inch

Bond: innovative combined bonds to ensure the best performance, resin bond BP50 for polishing at fine sizes and metal-resin bond BP05 for grinding at coarser grain sizes. 

Grain size: Please select from the list, or read Technical information.  
The finest grain size is 0.5/0 micron (fine polishing) , the coarsest - 200/160 micron (rough grinding). 
In grain selection window you see grain sizes according to standards:
MICRON=MESH(GRIT)=FEPA

CBN concentration: 100%
Do not waste your money on cheaper stones with lower/unknown concentration.

Flat solid block on aluminum.

Preparation of sharpening stones
Unlike other sharpening stones, most of these combined bond stones do not need preparation, except stones with grits finer 1 microns (<Grit 15000). Ultrafine grains (1/0, 0.5/0) form agglomerates in a bond, so you may need to dress them with abrasive powders/pastes, or they will be self-polished after sharpening of 30-50 knives.

Use and cleaning of CBN sharpening stones
Use any comfortable oil (baby, olive..) to prevent glazing. If glazed - clean with alcohol and toothbrush.

Maintenance (in 1-2 years), flattening/revitalization:
- resin bond stones - with silicon (silica) carbide powders on glass plate,
- metal bond stones - with FeCl.
There are other methods (with SiC powders..), but method with FeCl, on glass plate is the cheapest and simplest.

You may buy 100 gr. of FeCl in dimensions selection window (click also any grain size to select it). I sell it if you buy a stone.
