Full description

This Shapton Glass Stone sharpens quickly and evenly. 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.

The secret to sharpening is pick one of the many methods and stick to it until you master the technique. My weapon of choice is the ceramic sharpening stones of which Shapton are the best manufacturer. This 6000 grit is my intermittent stone used to flatten the backs of chisels and plane irons. From then on I use a 1000 grit and a 16000 grit for honing. A solution of Hone Write in the water to prohibit rusting and a good honing guide and you have everything covered. On a separate note concerning a different order I found the Customer Service of this website to be excellent. I will be using them for all of my future sharpening needs. 10 out of 10

As good as it gets.... I am a carpenter and have used this to sharpen chisels and planer blades. It gives an edge that is as sharp as a modern multi blade razor! So easy and quick to get an edge ... and you don't have the hassle of having to flatten it each time it's used.... I used a spray bottle with some water in it - meaning it is much more convenient than other Waterstones or Whetstones. Although it seems expensive ... it will last you a lifetime and takes the hassle out of the boring job of sharpening tools
