For many sharpening progressions the 4k stone has a pivotal role. The 4k is often the first “fine” or “finishing” stone used. Following something in the 1k range, the 4k can produce a toothy but refined edge for a wide range of cutlery applications, or it can continue polishing an edge before stepping to an ultra-refined 8k or even 10k finish. The Shapton Glass 4k makes an excellent option in this grit range with the Shapton Glass line’s characteristic hardness helping produce precise edges, its fast cutting and slow dishing, and its splash and go convenience. The stone measures 210mm x 70mm x 5mm plus the glass backer plate the stone is mounted to which adds an additional 5mm of thickness.

These are nice stones - relatively fast cutting, long-wearing, etc. I use a 1000-4000-8000 set up & am happy w it. One word of warning - the stones are more fragile then they look/feel! It is surprisingly easy to break one...

THis will keep a mirror edge on all of your tools once they've been sharpened properly.

Great transition between a 1000 and a 8000 grit stone. Produces a nice first polish. I really appreciate not having to soak the stone before using.

I don't think that most folks appreciate how great these glassstones are-the GS 4K is a perfect stone to follow your basic sharpening stones. The point I appreciate the most about the glassstones is how fast you can splash them(no soaking needed)-a big plus in a busy kitchen...
