The Shapton line of stones we carry for the Edge Pro are cut a little thicker than some of the other lines. We are cutting these at 7.5mm, so you get a little longer life out of them. As with all the stones in the Shapton line, these are splash and go, so no waiting to get that sharp, keen edge you are looking for. The 2000 grit stone is a nice medium fine grit to refine the edge as you progress through the sharpening routine.
Going from 500 grit to 1000 grit and thrn stropping or finishing with reverse strokes provide an edge sharp enough for all the kitchrn knives I’ve done so far. I will only go finer grit and strop for super hard,high end steel.
