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.
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
