Posted By: VincentWhen 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.
