After 2 years of working with Shapton on these sets we are proud to announce that we have the exclusive rights to offer Shapton Glass Stones for the Edge Pro Apex System.

Shapton Glass Stones are ideal stones to use for the Edge Pro since they are slow wearing, splash and go and will cut almost any steel on the market. They cut well and finish well and we were able to have these stones made specifically for the Edge Pro Apex. The stones measure about 6mm thick and will last a long time.

A key feature of the Edge Pro design is the lack of a clamp to hold the blade during sharpening. Once you use an Edge Pro, you will invariably find that the clamp is the problem with all the other systems. The clamp severely limits the size and shape of the knives you can sharpen. You can't do serrated knives, double edges, very large or small blades, flexible knives, and any knife that does not have a flat surface for the clamp. The clamp also limits the angles you can sharpen at. The Edge Pro Apex can handle almost any blade length, blade shape, and bevel angle. Brilliant!

In this set you get a number of accessories unique to Chefknivestogo including a water bottle, drill stop collar, platform magnet and quick change spring. Add in the five custom Shapton Glass stones and you have a set that is willing and able to take on almost any blade type or size and give you an edge that is hard to better even with the best hand sharpening stones and techniques.

Apex Custom Shapton Glass Stone kit includes:

  • Edge Pro Sharpening System
  • Black Cordura Carrying Case
  • Instructional Manual
  • Microfiber Cloth
  • Water Bottle
  • Drill Stop Collar
  • Platform Magnet
  • Quick Change Spring
  • 20x Loupe
  • Shapton Glass 320 Grit Stone
  • Shapton Glass 500 Grit Stone
  • Shapton Glass 1,000 Grit Stone

    5  Shapton glass stones-nothing bad to be said!, January 7, 2015
    Posted By: Max S.

    I did not buy this kit, but I use the same set of stones that you get here. I have all of the standard edge pro stones and all of the tapes, including the Edepro 1200 grit stone.
    The thing is these shaptons are just phenomenal... They require so little water to use, they don't soak AT ALL, they polish and cut so fast yet wear extremely slow. They are literally magical for this system. Much thicker than the chosera and slower wearing these stones will last a good long time. The feeling of sharpening on the 4000 grit stone and up is... *put in-appropriate word here* just great. Can't really explain it, the 8k feels like you are sharpening on a thick layer of air... or fog? Hard to explain. Can't wait to try the 16k!!!! I really see no better stone for the edgepro than these glass stones. You can lap them with the edgepro leveling kit as well. I know people sing high praise for Chosera but all I can say is... BUY THIS ONE! Chosera stones produce too much swarf for me anyway.

    About a year ago I was looking at the Edge Pro system and commented that it would be fantastic if it was offered with the Shapton Glass stones.

    Bingo.

    Yeah, it's that good. I understand the soul of hand sharpening, but, let's be honest, using this set I can get absolutely perfect results in 1/4 of the time. The harder to sharpen steels like VG-10 and ZDP-189? Butter.

    Literally, you could not replicate the edge achieved with this system unless you were an absolute master at hand sharpening.

    All of my knives, regardless of the type of steel, are now hair shaving, razor sharp with the exact angle I want on each blade. I don't know how you could do any better than this.
