Full description

This Shapton Glass Stone, grit 120 is perfect for smooth, even sharpening. Which is exactly what we're looking for from a high-quality sharpening stone. Contrary to what you might expect from the name, the glass doesn't do the sharpening. You sharpen on a high-quality Japanese water stone. A layer of tempered glass is attached to this to prevent bending. This stone is suitable for sharpening almost all types of knives. From outdoor knives to kitchen knives, from pocket knives to chisels. These stones really come into their own with hard steels in particular. This includes the modern powder steels that you find in high-end pocket knives.

This sharpening stone really is splash & go. That means you don't have to submerge it in water before use. Simply sprinkle some water onto it and the sharpening can begin. It removes material quickly, so the sharpening process is quick and easy. So you get sharp knives in no time, and cause less wear and tear. The glass plate ensures you can use the stone right to its limit, further increasing the lifespan of your sharpening stone. Even as the stone gets thinner after years of use,

the sharpening result remains very even. The sharpening particles, made from white aluminium oxide, are very uniform in their shape and size. The minuscule "scratches" you add to your edge with this stone are therefore very even. You won't find it causing larger scratches that are difficult to file away with a finer grit. Sharpening enthusiasts truly appreciate this. This Shapton Glass Stone is quite simply one of the best sharpening stones on the market.

Bought it thinking it would speed up hand grinding small bevels. Unfortunately it totally does not work for that. It cuts very slowly (A2, PM-V11), require constant flattening to loose some abrasive to cut, otherwise it just get very even and leave blade more polished than my 300/1000 grit trend stone, both of it's sides! Eventually I have no use for it.

If you have any repair work or a re-profiling then this stone is ideal for you, otherwise I would go for a higher grit level as this removes a lot of metal. Great stone and typical Shapton quality (that is exceptional). Shaptons suit me great because they're 'splash and go' so no need to soak the stones which I don't have time for.
