Full description

With this Shapton Pro Stone you can quickly and very evenly sharpen your knives. This ceramic Japanese sharpening stone has a grain size of 1000. Perfect for sharpening a knife which is already in decent shape but could use a bit of a polish. The sharpening stone can be used to sharpen practically all knives. From outdoor knives to kitchen knives, and from pocket knives to chisels.

Shapton Pro Stones

The colourful Shapton Pro sharpening stones are in Japan also known as Shapton Ha-No-Kuromaku. These particular sharpening stones are the thickest made by Shapton, with a thickness of 15 mm. As is common for Shapton the stones are uniform in terms of structure, with evenly divided ceramic grain particles. This ensures that you will always have even results. Because the stones are relatively hard, they quickly remove material enabling them to stay in great shape even longer.

Shapton Pro Stones: grain sizes and colours

The Shapton-Pro sharpening stones come in different grain sizes. Each of these grain sizes equals a different colour. As such you will immediately see which stone you will need. The grain sizes and colours are as follows:

With the Shapton Pro sharpening stones you will have the right stone for each step of the sharpening process. From restoring a blade with the extra coarse 120 stone, to polishing a blade with the superfine 12.000 grain stone.

Using the Shapton Pro Stones

Each Shapton Pro sharpening stone works with a splash & go concept: cover the stone with a little bit of water and you are ready to get to work. You will immediately notice that the stone quickly removes any material. As such you will gets results quickly without wearing out the stone. Don’t submerge the stone. It simply won’t do it any good. The same applies to exposing it to high temperatures, boiling or soapy water.

Clean the stone after using it with water and allow it to dry. Try not to speed up the process with a fan or heater, but simply give the stone the time to dry thoroughly. When it is dry you can put it back into its case.

When you use the knife frequently it will, over the course of time, hollow out a bit. Fortunately you can easily fix this problem using a lapping plate.

Multifunctional case

This Shapton Pro Stone is delivered in an orange plastic case, matching the colour of the stone itself. This case is not only great to store your stone in. After all, the case has edges with plenty of room for the stone. As such you can also use the case as a base while sharpening your knives. The non-skid feet attached to the case will prevent the case from sliding when you sharpen your knife. Finally, ventilation holes have been added in order for you to store your sharpening stone without ever having to worry about it. Even when the stone is still a little wet. Details that truly make a difference.

This is the perfect stone to start on. It is nice and big, comes in a storage box so it doesn't get damaged, and you can also use the box to hold the stone as you sharpen. Sharpening on it feels very very satisfying, there's some nice feedback (so you know if you're doing it wrong or not) and it's the perfect grit to start on. It will sharpen blunt knives (although if they're -really- blunt, you might need a coarser stone, or doing it on this one may take a while) and with some practice relating to pressure and angles, you will be able to get a razor sharp edge on any knife. If you have softer, German knives, this stone will be sufficient, because the higher grits aren't as useful on softer steel. This makes this a perfect starting stone (and might be the only one you ever need). If you have knives with harder steel, like Japanese, you will still be able to get a razor sharp edge on them, but you may feel like going up to the higher grits. Shapton do a 5000 grit stone in this range which is also good (and the boxes stack which is very useful) and going from 1000 to 5000 works well. The stone will need flattening every now and then. If you have more than 1 shapton stone, you can rub them together to make them both flat (the 1000 and 5000 grit do this well). It helps to try and use all the stone when sharpening, and flipping it round every now and then so all corners of the stone get some wear.
