While there are a number of combinations of grits that can be used to build a basic sharpening stone progression and opinions vary widely on how to approach doing so the basics are simple: use quality stones; include a coarse stone for repairs, a medium stone as a workhorse, and a fine stone to refine the edge into a precision cutting instrument. This 3 piece set stones does exactly that with Shapton Glass stones of 500, 1,000, and 6,000 grit. The Shapton Glass stones have built a reputation as one of the finest lines of stones available on the market. They cut quickly, wear slowly, and are convenient to use thanks to requiring only a splash of water to get going. This kit begins with 500 grit stone which offers the aggressive cutting needed to remove chips, redefine bevels, and thin worn knives. The 1k is the workhorse of most sharpening progressions. During the typical sharpening session, the 1k is the first stone used and it is responsible for doing the lionís share of the work. This set finishes with the 6k stone. The 6k edge is widely considered the goldilocks finish for kitchen applications, highly refined, near mirror polished, but with enough teeth to making cutting a breeze. These stones measure 8.25Ē x 2.75Ē each.
