Shapton Glass Sharpening Stone HC, 8000 Grit, #50803

This stone is optimized for sharpening carbon steel knives.

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

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. The Naniwa rust eraser works well for cleaning sharpening stones, and of course you'll eventually need to flatten your stones, so consider one of the flattening stones or diamond lapping plates.

Made in Japan.

It's really designed for the HC knife

Used it for the last step while sharpening the blue #2 and blue super. Got the result faster than the regular 6000 grits and 12000 grits together. It can achieve near mirror finish.
I decided to bought the HC 4000 for my work knives maintenance along with the Idahone fine rod.
