Description

Details

The stone is fired at a high temperature with a mixture of abrasive and a clay binder. It is 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.  

These stones are easy to use, no need to wait for them to saturate, some of the fastest cutting stones on the market, and these stones are hard wearing, needing infrequent flattening.

White #120 - Extra Coarse

The White #120 stone is formulated for quick steel removal. It can quickly sharpen chipped or pitted edges. The scratch pattern will be coarse but very consistent.

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.

Wine #5000 - Fine

The Wine #5000 stone is the first polishing stone. It can still remove some metal but is primary a polishing stone. It is more dense than most stones.

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.

Yellow #12000 - Extra Fine

The Yellow #12000 was originally designed for fine woodworking tools requiring an extremely fine edge. It will leave a bright mirror finish. It is a serious polishing stone.

Flattening Stone

We have tested many flattening stones to find the best value.  We agree with the experts that the DMT Dia-Flat Lapping Plate is the right choice to flatten the Shapton Waterstones and any other water or oilstones you have. The lapping plate is 4” x 10”.  With a consistent, aggressive diamond surface and precision ground, hand certified flat to +/- 0.0005”, the Dia-Flat™ Lapping Plate assures precise results when flattening stones. Its extra-large surface area makes it easy to use.

Starter Package:  It order to make your decision easier and your sharpening more productive, we have come up with two Starter Sharpening Stone Starter Packages.  The first has the five most popular and most necessary Shapton Professional Waterstones. The package includes 120, 1000, 5000, 8000 and 12000 grit stones.  The second package includes those five Waterstones and the DMT Dia-Flat Lapping Plate.
