Shapton Glass Stone 1000 Grit Sharpening Stone

7 items left

Shapton Glass Stone, 1000 Grit, #50202. 

210mm x 70mm, 5mm thick (total thickness is 10mm: 5mm of abrasive bonded to 5mm glass plate). 

This is a superb stone, an absolute must-have! Cuts fast, is very hard and long-lasting and leaves a superb edge, ready for easy and quick refinement with a finer stone. The Glass Stones are a real pleasure to use, and extremely consistent. Everyone loves this stone!

Shapton GlassStones are very fast cutting and long-lasting. The ceramic abrasive is permanently bonded to a glass plate so the whole unit is very flat and very strong. The abrasive is extremely consistent and dense so you have a great feel and can produce very precise and clean edges, plus these have the convenience of splash-and-go sharpening (do not soak these stones).

The Shapton stone holder (sold separately) is designed to fit these stones perfectly and is quite heavy and tall, providing a great workstation. The more affordable Naniwa universal/adjustable stone holder also works fine for these stones.

Made in Japan.

Great for "Hard" Knives

I was having trouble sharpening my very hard Japanese knives (SG2 steel) with traditional stones, so it was suggested that I try these. I bought the 500 for stock removal and a mid-grit 1000 to try them out, and they are superb. The tactile feel is like no other stone I've ever used, and they make short work of the SG2 steel. I highly recommend these stones.

Haven't used the stones much yet, but so far they seem to be working just fine. Better than other stones i've tried.
Thank you.

Good learning stone and forgiving

I bought this stone on this website a year ago so I have had time to use it quite a bit. Recently I have bought a flattening stone because my Shapton had lost efficiency. I have to say, after a year of moderate use and an hour of flattening, this stone is as good as new. It cuts really fast and uses quite slowly. As for the finition, it's a 1000 so not a mirror finish but it's a better finition then a lot is 1000 grit stones will give you.
