The Shapton Glass Stone HR 1.84 Micron #8000 Grit is part of the Glass Stone series, known for its revolutionary design that combines glass layers to create thin and lightweight sharpening stones. These stones offer great usability and deliver a light polish and refined edge on your blade, making them ideal for achieving optimal sharpness.
The 8000 grit Glass Stone is classified as a Fine grit stone. It excels at leaving a light polish and a refined edge on your blade. Adding it to your sharpening progression will enhance the sharpness of your blade.
Contrary to the conventional image of large and heavy sharpening stones, Glass Stones are thin, light, and strong due to the layers of tempered glass bonded together. This construction provides them with a high resistance to cracking and sudden breakage caused by external shocks, such as accidental drops.
The abrasives in these glass stones are extremely uniform, ensuring that the abrasive encountered with the first pass of a blade remains consistent until the end of the stone's life. This uniformity enables precise and reliable sharpening results.
The Glass Stone series includes two types each of the 4000, 6000, and 8000 sharpening stones. The main difference between them lies in the abrasive agents used. Specifically, the Glass Stone series 50603, 50703, and 50803 are recommended for sharpening composite steel blades where steel has been forge-welded with another metal.
Each Glass Stone in the series is composed of a 5mm tempered glass backing plate bonded to a 5mm thick stone. Shapton sharpening Glass Stones are made with finely graded ceramic cutting media, which requires less flattening and has a longer lifespan compared to most whetstones.
For premium stability and professional results, consider adding a Shapton Stone holder to your sharpening setup.
