Shapton stones are designed to be harder, faster cutting, and denser than any other ceramic water stone on the market. Because they remove material quickly, the time required to hold an angle on the stone is reduced, making free hand sharpening much easier. Shapton water stones are made with finely-graded ceramic cutting media, which wears much more slowly than aluminum oxide and silicon carbide commonly found in other man-made water stones. These are splash-and-go stones, so no soaking is required. This results in a similar thickness of sharpening material lasting much longer. This 500x stone is the perfect place to start when resetting the bevel on a knife or removing chips. It will leave a very uniform scratch pattern, the perfect setup when used prior to the 1k. These stones measure 8.25 x 2.75 each.

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 Id prefer. That said,none are this compact.

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.

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.

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

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...
