    5  Shapton stones, October 10, 2016

    They work well, they're kind of hard to keep still without the holder, but you can do it if you don't want to shell out the cash.

    4  Did the job, but stay away from the Shapton Stone holder, April 7, 2016

    When you pay that much cash for something, and It gets excellent reviews, you would hope that it does the job. It almost did the job. The holder is very heavy, very well built, and it does not move. However, not all the Shapton glass stones were held tightly in it. When I purchased the Shapton Holder I also purchased the 3 stone set, 500, 1000, and 4000. Both the 500 and the 1000 moved around a lot. It made flattening the stones, and sharpening the knife very difficult. Because of the movement I rolled the knife and took a bite out of the stone. Both of the stones were not that much smaller, but it made a difference. And this is probably a knock on Shapton Glass Stones too. Ever so slight of a difference in length, made a huge difference when sharpening using the companies own product.

    Puchased this as a starter set and immediately purchased a 320 grit stone, a extra extra course diamond flatting stone, a 8000 grit stone and the strop kit. Great stones that perform very well. They have been easy to use and maintain and the 1000/4000 set puts a very nice edge on my knives. You may decide not to go to a higher grit stone, but you will surly want a 320 or 500 stone (IMO). Also, these stones are very short, so you need something to hold them so your knuckles don't hit the surface of the counter.

    I'm new to sharpening, but I've found these stones to be very approachable and not intimidating. The splash and go surface increases their ease of use, and I've felt very comfortable working with them. I'm currently practicing on my beater knives, but I don't think it will be long until I have the confidence to take my work knives to these stones. Mark was very helpful in recommending Shapton Glass Stones as a great introductory stone and the service was tremendous as usual.

    I love these Japanese water stones. Very easy to sharpen a blade with them. They dry fast enough and clean up easy also.

    Ordered these stones on Friday afternoon and they were here Saturday by noon. Less than 24 hours. These are a great pair of stones. I use them to sharpen my woodworking tools. Throwing my diamond stones out.
