Shapton Glass Stone: HR 2000 Grit
- Product Review (submitted on 3 March 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.
