Shapton Glass Stone 1000 Grit Sharpening Stone

8 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.

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.
