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 #30000 grit stone has a particle size of 0.49 microns and is ideal for putting an ultra sharp edge on a straight razor. Although it's not an essential stone, we do recommend using it after the #16000 grit stone if you like a really sharp edge. 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.

I own Shapton 8000, 16000 & 30000 grit stones. It is wide enough for my straight razors. I honed the razors eight times each side. It produced a finish on my great great grandfather's Bengal razor, equal to a 'Feather Cut' disposable straight razor blade; which I swear is scalpel sharp. My razors were sharpened once like this in March and they are still sharp in October with a few slaps on a Dovo strop before each shave.
