Shapton stones are known for their high abrasive content, enabling efficient and speedy sharpening. Unlike traditional stones, Shapton stones do not require soaking in water before use. Simply splash some water on the stone and start sharpening within seconds. After use, allow the stone to air dry in indirect sunlight before storing.
Shapton's unique bonding technology ensures optimal performance and durability, resulting in long-lasting sharpening stones. The broad range of Shapton stones caters to various blade compositions and shapes, delivering excellent sharpening and a flawless finish.
The 6000 grit Glass Stone in this set is classified as a Fine grit stone. It is perfect for achieving a light polish and a refined edge on your blade. Adding it to 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.
Contrary to the traditional perception of sharpening stones as large and heavy, Glass Stones are thin, light, and strong due to the layers of tempered glass. This construction ensures strong resistance against cracking or sudden breakage caused by external shocks such as accidental drops.
The abrasives in these glass stones are extremely uniform, which means the abrasive encountered during the first pass of a blade will remain consistent throughout the stone's lifespan. This uniformity contributes to reliable and predictable sharpening results.
