The Shapton Glass Stone HC 1.84 Micron #8000 Grit is part of the innovative Glass Stone series of sharpening stones. Designed with a combination of glass layers, these stones offer excellent usability and allow users to achieve the ideal finish for any type of blade. Along with the wide selection of stones, Shapton also provides a range of accessories that are popular worldwide.
Shapton stones are known for their high abrasive content, enabling fast and efficient sharpening. Unlike traditional stones, Shapton stones do not require soaking in water before use. Simply splash on some water and start sharpening within seconds. After use, allow the stone to air dry in indirect sunlight before storing.
Thanks to Shapton's unique bonding technology, these stones offer reduced wear and have a longer lifespan compared to conventional sharpening stones. The broad range of Shapton stones allows users to select the most suitable option for their blade's composition and shape, ensuring excellent sharpening and a perfect finish.
The 8000 grit Glass Stone in this set is classified as a Fine grit stone. It is ideal for achieving a light polish and a refined edge on your blade. Incorporating it into your sharpening progression will result in optimal sharpness. The HC option in this series is specifically designed for High Carbon blades and provides a less aggressive cutting feel. The HR series, on the other hand, is optimized for more modern blade steels.
The Shapton Glass Stones challenge the conventional image of large and heavy sharpening stones. Their thin, light, and strong tempered glass construction, with layers of glass bonded together, provides excellent resistance to cracking or sudden breakage caused by external shocks.
The abrasives in these glass stones are remarkably uniform, ensuring that the abrasive encountered during the first pass of a blade will be consistent throughout the stone's lifespan. This consistency contributes to reliable and predictable sharpening results.
