Shapton's Legacy of Excellence
Shapton, a renowned name in the world of sharpening, has built a legacy of excellence spanning decades. With a commitment to innovation and precision, Shapton has continually pushed the boundaries of sharpening technology, and the RockStar series is a testament to their dedication.
Unmatched Quality and Consistency

Shapton employs advanced manufacturing processes that result in precisely graded abrasive particles. This ensures that every sharpening stone in the RockStar lineup delivers consistent performance, sharpen after sharpen.
Grit Size Matters
Choosing the right grit size is crucial for achieving the desired level of sharpness. The RockStar series offers a range of grit sizes, from the coarser 320-grit stone to the ultra-fine 16,000-grit stone. Here's a breakdown of how to use different grit sizes:
- Coarse Grits (e.g., 320, 500): Use these grits for repairing damaged or very dull blades. They are ideal for removing chips, nicks, or reshaping edges.
- Medium Grits (e.g., 1000, 2000): These grits are suitable for regular maintenance and sharpening. They help maintain a sharp edge on your knives and tools.
- Fine Grits (e.g., 4000, 6000): Fine grits are for refining and polishing the edge further, providing a keen edge that's suitable for most cutting tasks.
- Ultra-Fine Grits (e.g., 8000, 10,000, 16,000): These ultra-fine stones are for achieving razor-sharp edges on precision instruments or for those who demand the highest level of sharpness.
