Shapton stones are known for their high abrasive content, which enables them to sharpen blades quickly and efficiently. Unlike traditional sharpening stones, Shapton stones do not require soaking in water before use. Simply splash some water on the stone and start sharpening right away. After use, allow the stone to air dry in indirect sunlight before storing it.
Shapton's unique bonding technology ensures that the abrasives on the stones perform optimally, resulting in long-lasting sharpening stones that require less frequent flattening. The Glass Stone series offers a wide variety of stones to suit different blade compositions and shapes, providing excellent sharpening and a perfect finish.
The HR 0.49 Micron #30000 Grit Glass Stone is classified as a Super Fine grit stone, ideal for achieving a highly refined polish and a superior edge on your blade. It is recommended to add this stone to your sharpening progression for optimal sharpness.
Each Glass Stone in the series is composed of a 5mm tempered glass backing plate bonded to a 5mm thick stone. This construction not only makes the stones thin and lightweight but also ensures they are strong and resistant to cracking or sudden breakage caused by external shocks.
The abrasives in the Glass Stones are extremely uniform, ensuring consistent performance from the first pass to the end of the stone's life. This uniformity allows for precise and reliable sharpening results.
