Shapton Glass Sharpening Stone, 500 Grit

Please notify me when this item becomes available
  • Shapton sharpening stones combine extremely fast cutting action with low maintenance. The Shapton line of glass water-stones has been carefully manufactured to achieve the highest levels of performance and durability. They may appear thin at first glance but they will outlast most other stones that are three times the thickness. These abrasives are extremely uniform. Consistency is the primary goal for Shapton's engineers. The abrasive that you encounter with the first pass will be the same on the 5,000th pass. And this will be true for every abrasive size.
    As with every water-stone, Shapton glass stones require lapping (flattening) to maintain the sharpening surface in proper shape.
    They do not need to be soaked in water; simply splash some on and start sharpening.
    As with all water hones Shapton water-stones do wear concave with use and require periodic re-flattening.

    500 grit / 29.4 micron: Ideal for resetting the edge of the blade, removing chips and dents from an old blade.

    Dimensions: 2.75" x 8.25" (210 mm x 70 mm)
    Made in Japan

Shapton Glass Sharpening Stone, 500 Grit

I really like this stone. I almost always start with this stone. Cuts super fast on standard stainless steel blades and does it smoothly. It cleans up slight imperfections fast. Wear on the 500 is very very low. I put 12 knives through it just after bought it, leaning hard on some of them, and it shows zero sign of wear.

Shapton Glass Sharpening Stone, 500 Grit

I sharpen about 1,000 knives per year and this stone is a crucial part of my line up. I am on my third 500 grit Shapton Glass stone. The beauty of these products goes beyond the fact that they excel at knife sharpening. They dish very slowly, they are splash and go, they come perfectly flat and do the job very quickly. I have a knife sharpening business, I have tried a multitude of Japanese Water Stone brands and Shapton Glass come out on top every time. For the average sharpener, this stone will last a very long time. I can't say enough about this product and of course the service.
