Shapton Professional Waterstone 2-Stone Sharpening Pack


KUROMAKU is the world's first set of color-coded sharpening stones, each color representing a different grade of coarseness. The storage case makes it easy to carry the stones, and can also be used as a sharpening base. These stones are waterstones but can also be used as oilstones. 

Kuromaku waterstones cut faster and more efficiently than any other stone on the market.

Shapton Kuromaku Professional Waterstones are some of the fastest cutting stones on the market. They are easy to use with no need to wait for them to saturate. These stones are hard wearing, needing infrequent flattening.

The stones are fired at a high temperature with a mixture of abrasive and a clay binder. They measure 8-1/4" x 2-3/4" x 5/8".  The case has rubber feet to help prevent slippage.

These “Splash and Go” stones do not absorb water and do not need to be soaked. Shapton Traditional Stones are often called the Shapton Pro or Professional Stones. Each name refers to the same Shapton series of stones.  

Orange #1000 - Medium/Coarse

The Orange #1000 is a very popular intermediate stone. Great for moderate stock removal. This stone is good to use prior to polishing.

Melon #8000 - Very Fine

The Melon #8000 is a very nice polishing stone. Shapton spent thousands of hours on research and development on this stone to make it perform up to their standard. It will leave a very fine polish with a microscopically fine scratch pattern.
