With this combination stone, I can my knife edges sharper than they were out of the factory
The #1000 grit side is used to return a dull blade edge to sharpness. At this point, it's perfectly fine to start using the knife.
What you paid for in buying this stone though, is the #8000 grit "finishing" side, which adds a whole new level of experience in knife sharpness.
This side of the stone will polish the cutting edge into a mirror finish and enhance the sharpness of the blade. With this combination stone I was able to make my Global Sai knives sharper than they came out of the factory. Now with just the weight of the knife and pulling to slice, my chef and vegetable knives glide through most fruit, veges and meat in one stroke.
A word of warning for the unfamiliar, at #8000 grit, don't expect to feel the typical burring you get from sharpening on a coarser grit. I use my eyes to determine when the blade edges are polished evenly enough.
The stones will get marked as your blades get sharpened on them, which I think is good as this tells you the stones are working on your blades. As a best practice, one should always be cleaning and re-flattening the whetstones after each knife is sharpened.
Which leads me to deducting 1/2 a star. After working on several knives for practice and cleaning/flattening, I've found that the #1000 grit surface wears down MUCH faster than the #8000 grit. Once it wears out, you'll have to get yourself another #1000 or medium grit stone, #8000 grit is much too fine grit to restore a dull edge in a realistic amount of time.

Razor sharp finish!
Love this stone. Got my knives sharp enough to shave my arm hairs quickly and easily. No problem here with the rubber feet falling off, and the box has a groove on top to place the stone in so the lid never gets in the way at all. Great product - highly recommended
