The 500 grit Shapton Glass water stone offers enough flexibility for most users to do chip repairs as needed while doubling as a first stone in a normal sharpening progression. This versatility couples with Shapton Glassí reputation for performance to warrant putting this stone on anyoneís shortlist for coarse grit water stones. The Shapton Glass line is designed to cut the most abrasion resistant steels on the market. The stones are hard for precise bevel setting and they cut quickly while wearing slowly all with the added convenience of requiring no soaking. Just spray the stone with water and get to work. The 500 grit Shapton Glass stone is 210mm x 70mm x 5mm and is mounted to a glass plate which adds 5mm to the thickness of the stone.

Shapton designed the 500 grit stone to be a bevel setting grit. The 500 being the coarsest stone you can flatten with the DGLP means its a must buy, for those of us who use the glass stones within the shapton glass system!
This stone cuts fast as anything in its grit range, yet it remains flat for a long time. The 500 is one of Shapton Glass's premier pieces. The three stones this range is known for are the 500, 2000 and the 16k, no wonder they come in a set from shapton!
However: I personally prefer the set up Mark suggests on his site, which is 500, 1k, 4k.... again you see the 500 grit stone in that progression. You NEED this stone if you are going to go shapton glass, its a must purchase! I would also like to point out that this stone is a very decent choice for a 500 grit hone even if your mixing and matching brands.

Great for bevel setting, as it leaves a very light and even scratch pattern. Cleans up heavier scratches from diamond plates with ease. Surprised at the level of polish from a course stone. Could easily pass up the 1k and jump straight to 2 or 3k. Great splash and go...

Excellent stone. Fast cutting and an advisable step between 220/320 and 1000 grits.

This is my second 1000 grit stone. Fast cutting and stays flat longer than traditional waterstones. I have most all of the shapton glass stones and they are my go to sharpening stones

For a while now, I have been using Japanese water stones to sharpen my chisels and plane irons. As they wear out, I'm switching to the Shapton stones. I really appreciate how quickly and cleanly they get the job done, without having to true it up (re-flatten) as often.

Great stone. Removes material very quickly. Great transition between a 220 and a 1000 grit stone. I really appreciate not having to soak the stone before using.

My first purchase for stones was the GlassStone set-500,1,4,8K. Of these stones, the most used were the 1K & the 500-the 500 is my go-to stone for metal removal,used together w/ the DMT XXC, I can take back any edge to a point to where it can be improved upon...

Cuts reasonably well, but there are other options out there I'd prefer. That said, none are this compact.
