It will show up well lapped and a good bit of the way toward its ultimate fineness. I would use it as is and never do anything else to it (no lapping, etc, which will ruin the surface treatment that dan's does). It will continue to get get finer and slower cutting, which is what you want.

Mine came. The lapping is pretty coarse looking compared to other translucent and surgical black stones I have, and it cuts like it too. It'll leave an edge that just shaves arm hair according to the little I have done with it so far. I expect that it will settle in quite a bit finer.

I have had good results waking those stones up by using them as nagura with my Norton waterstones. The finest waterstones will definitely leave the trans arks too smooth for my purposes.
