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. Each stone is comprised of a 5mm tempered glass backing plate fused to a 5mm thick stone. The #4000 grit stone has a particle size of 3.68 microns and is ideal for sharpening a straight razor. Used in combination with the #8000 grit stone, you'll have an edge that you can shave with. 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.

Not the be all and end all for a cut throat Review by: Ben 23/07/2015

This is now of 2 stones I own (the other a Shapton 8000).

I am happy with the quality of the result on my kitchen knives but suggest that people also get the 8000 for their cut throats.
A great tool Review by: Deiter 10/07/2013

This stone was my first foray into the world of ceramic sharpening stones and I have not been disappointed. It works very quickly and gives a fantastic final result. You don't have to worry about soaking like a traditional wet stone, just wet it and off you go. My razor has never given a better shave!
