Description

Shapton Glass Stones are known for their exceptional quality, durability and ease of use. Unlike other waterstones, Shapton Glass Stones do not need to be soaked in water before use - simply wet the surface and begin honing your blade. Shapton sharpening stones are made with finely graded ceramic cutting media that requires less flattening and lasts 4-5 times longer than most water stones. The abrasives in Shapton Glass Stones are also extremely uniform, meaning the abrasive encountered with the first pass of a blade will be the same as the 5000th pass. The #500 grit stone has a particle size of 29.4 microns and isn't required for routine sharpening - it's intended for setting a bevel or fixing a small chip in the blade of a straight razor. We recommend using the Shapton Stone Holder to hold the stone in place when in use. Made in Japan.

HOW TO USE

Shapton Glass Stones do not need to be soaked or stored in water. Before use, spray the Glass Stone with water, or dampen with a clean wet cloth and begin sharpening (you sharpen on the ceramic side, not the glass). Use extremely light, even pressure and lead with the cutting edge. As with all water hones Shapton Glass Stones do wear concave with use and require periodic lapping (flattening), best accomplished with the Shapton Glass Diamond Lapping Plate.

RECOMMENDED FOR

Sharpening all makes of Straight Razor/Cut Throat Razor/Cut-throat Razor/Open Razor, Sharpening Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel.

A very happy customer Review by: Joseph 3/03/2017

I was so impressed with the 16,000 Shapton I got here a month ago, I lashed out and bought the 500 and 2000 in that series. I put my steel edge across both stones, saw no light. I hatched them with a pencil and hit them with a diamond plate anyway, taking only enough to eliminate the pencil. A waste of time, they were flat enough though this proved it. I've since done a number of planes, chisels and knives and find I needed virtually no pressure to get the edge clean and consistent. Finish with the 16K and got a nice mirror.

Would I reccomend these? They are pricey but one gets what one pays for. I tend to go for quality over price and I am more than happy with the results.
Furthermore, the price in Australia is pretty much the best I could find and the service . . . once more, top notch.
