Often the coarsest stone use in a typical sharpening session, the 1k stone is called upon to do the lionís share of the work. The Shapton Glass 1k water stone is an outstanding option and value and should be on everyoneís shortlist for this grit range. Shapton Glass stones are very hard stones ensuring the edges they produce are very precise. The stone cuts very quickly making sharpening a pleasure rather than a chore and wear very slowly making for long stone life. The edge off the Shapton Glass 1k is a great toothy edge for kitchen applications or a great stepping off point for the higher levels of refinement most high quality cutlery is capable of taking. While the Shapton Glass 1k is without a doubt a premium stone, the price tag is very reasonably making it a great value as well as a great performer. The Shapton Glass stone is mounted to a glass backing plate and measures 210mm x 70mm x 5mm, 10mm including the plate.

This is one of the first stones I purchased for my knives, and is my most used. The feedback you get from this product line is exceptional. You can see whats coming off the blade, and you can feel how you are hitting the edge.
Great Product.

This is my first 1k stone and it has been great so far. I also got a 5k stone and as a beginner to the sharpening world, I can get my knives pretty sharp. This is a great product and Mark did a great job getting it to me in a timely manner.

Great stone, cuts fast and doesn't cloud up with metal swarf much. Had to be lapped as all the Glass Stone series did for me.

The Shapton glass stones live up to their reputation. Find them excellent for woodworking tools as well. Very pleased with the speedy service from chef knives to go, too.

When I first started trying to sharpen my own knives,a few years ago, I purchased a Shapton GlassStone set-500, 1,4,8K. In hindsight,I think it was a great starter set, & of these stones, the 1K definitely got the most use-a good starting point for factory edges that need refinement & also a base for knives that need further sharpening.

Good stone to start with in any session -- also, very portable. What's not to like?
