I've not had experience cooking on soapstone so can't offer any opinion in that matter, but i have had a lot of experience in sculpting it. Soapstone is the softest stone you can get and that is its attraction as a sculpting medium apart from its inherent beauty. It is way softer than firebrick, you can cut it with a hand saw, sand or rasp it easily. The resultant powder that it produces is talc powder, dust a little under your arms. Another name for the stuff is talc stone. Look up Talc Alf, an interesting sculptor who carves soapstone. My question is how does is stand up to the continual abrasion of metal peels, pokers and logs of wood abrading the surface as it's so soft?

David, "soapstone" is a broad term covering a wide range of variation. I have seen soapstone that I could break with my hands and soapstone that was almost as hard as granite and been in use as a counter for a 100 years. You have to specify what the use will be for your soapstone.

David, we have had great use with almost no wear in three years. Not even any really noticeable scratches. We always try to choose what is considered "cooking grade" soapstone, and luckily that is what most suppliers up here get.
