Full description

This Shapton Glass Stone will give you a shiny polished blade. Exactly what you might expect from a high-quality sharpening stone. However, unlike what the name might suggest you won’t sharpen on glass. You sharpen on a high-quality Japanese water stone enhanced with a layer of low tempered glass to make sure it won’t bend. This stone can be used to sharpen practically any type of knife. From outdoor knives to kitchen knives and from pocket knives to chisels. Especially when you have a hard type of steel these stones will stand out. Think of the modern types of powdered steel you often find in high end pocket knives.

This sharpening stone is truly splash & go. This means that you don’t have to soak it in water beforehand. You simply splash it with a little bit of water and you are ready to go. It quickly removes material so sharpening will be done in no time. As such your stones will be sharper a lot quicker and you won’t wear out the stone as much. To extend the life of the stone the glass layer ensures that you can use the entire stone. Even when, after years of sharpening, the stone has gotten a lot thinner.

The sharpening results are very even. The little particles that do all the work, made from white aluminium oxide, are very uniform in terms of size and measurements. The miniscule ‘scratches’ you add to the blade of your knife with this stone are therefore very even. You won’t run into a larger scratch which is difficult to remove with a finer grain any time soon. Sharpening enthusiasts around the world truly appreciate this. This Shapton Glass Stone is simply one of the best sharpening stones on the market.

This set is comprised of the following:

I have up till now used natural Japanese whetstones (jnat) and i much prefer these slash and go setups. i have a kikuichi santoku 60 hrc and a Miyabi Santoku 66 hrc knives which both get hair whiting sharp using these stones. I also finish with a 0.5 micron leather strop (the black coloured compound also from knivesandtools). the stone stand is great for keeping the stones in place and functions well as a storage when you're done sharpening. it actually fits 6 Shapton glass stones placed sideways. the stones are hard and wont dish nearly as fast as jnat for instance. i have sharpend a dozen or so knives so far on these and the stones are still completely flat. i do use a dressing stone (nagura) after every other session or so, that helps keeping the stones clean and flat. id recommend adding a 300-500 grit stone to this collection and you will have a complete set for all sharpening needs. my order arrived quickly and in excellent shape and i am very satisfied with the quality of the stones and end result.

Great stones as always with Shapton The 8000 stone is an HC (Grey 50803) rather than the HR (White 50203) it is listed as though. So its an HR/HC set. Not necessarily a bad thing though.
