Like the rest of the Shapton Professional series, this 2,000 grit synthetic stone is hard, cuts quickly and is splash and go. This particular choice is an excellent stone prior to finishing in a sharpening progression. Indeed, some sharpeners will not go beyond this stone due to the refined, yet toothy edge that can be achieved through polishing strokes after burr formation. The stone is also frequently followed by light work with a Shapton Pro 5000 or 8000 grit stone for a bit of extra refinement when used on kitchen knives. A storage box which doubles as a stone holder is included by the maker. These stones measure 8.25 x 2.75 each.
*Please note, Shapton stopped printing their name on the Pro Stones for delivery to Shapton USA at the end of 2015. All new stones have no ink printed on the stones anymore.

5  The best shapton i have (1000, 2000, 8000), July 11, 2016
Posted By: Nameless Stranger

I use it just before my Suehiro Rika 5000. Smooth ! Silky ! It feels like a coarser Rika.

4  Cuts FAST!, July 11, 2016

It took me a while to make friends with this stone coming from more experience with Chosera's. The feed back is a bit lacking in comparison but by no means is it bad. It leaves a nice edge which could easily be a finishing edge for many knives. I use it that way for most of my non-ginsan stainless. the thing that impresses me most about this stone though, is how fast it cuts... Immediate swarf and fast burrs. Highly recommended.

This is the standout stone in this line. One of the best 2k stones I've used, Smooth nice creamy feel, dishes very slow and cuts fast. A good finisher for the average kitchen knife, a good transition stone to the 5k from lower grits or just a great stand alone stone. It does it all and does it well!

5  Loving this stone, July 7, 2016
Posted By: ut_ron

Love the feel of this stone, so nice to use. It is a splash and go, so does not need a soak. Does not create a lot of mud but does give good feedback on using it. This is my finishing stone for my kitchen knives mainly German steel with a couple of CKTG knifes I have ordered.

Not only a great feel but I really like how sharp they get with a edge that really works for most products I cut for fixing dinner. Works well for both veggies and protein. I am a home cook and not a professional cook.

Works good after the shapton pro 1k. A very cool stone! It sort of looks like old school pale green Frankenstein monster skin, or cartoon zombie flesh! You can certainly finish a knife on this stone. I did a kitchen knife with a 500 grit glass stone, then took my time on this 2k and got a very good polish. If you take your time, and do your slow finishing procedures with this "medium" stone you will get great results! I am impressed with this stone. unlike the 1k, you (can) get a very serviceable edge from it. I could never get much more than a basic working edge from the 1k.

Just like some of the other reviewers said, I would give 10 starts to this stone. It grinds metal very fast, I don't know why but it seems to be faster than the shapton pro 1k.It doesn't absorb water , the water just seems to stay like big drops on top of the stone. This stone is hard, nothing to do with slurry, it is a good finishing stone for the average kitchen knive. In the 2k-4k grit stones I already had the Norton 4k, shapton glass 4k and, Naniwa ss 3k; I think my Shapton pro 1k is going to be my favorite on that range.

Shapton number 2 and once again a winner. Cuts nice and quickly leaving behind a nice toothy edge. Splash and go so no need to soak. Dishes very slowly and leaves a good working edge.

Excellent stone. Cuts very fast and dishes super slow. Leaves a nice toothy edge. A good place to stop on most kitchen knives.

My experience is Shapton Pro line is much better on carbon steel and tool steel knives than on common stainless steel knives. I also have 1k and 1.5k as medium stone, and 5k as finishing stone. They are all good and I use them almost exclusively for my carbon steel and tool steel (like steels similar to D2) double bevel knives. For example, shapton pro 1k, 2k work great on my Yoshikane knives. Again, as always, it depends on how your knife interacts with your stone.

I would give this 10 stars if I could. I believe it actually works better than the 1k but in succession it is a one two punch that can't be beat. It cuts and polishes, for most home kitchens it might be all you need if you're not picky and obsessive like most of you knife junkies, when this wears out I might buy 2 so I will never be without and when or if you want to jump to the 5k shapton than you will be carving roasts and birds like a pro. The only thing else that can be said is the super service from cktg every business should use their program as a template for their company. peace jmbullman

I own the 1k also and this is the best 1-2 punch on the market today. You can actually set the bevel if the knife isn't too worn. Spend about 10 mins and than move on to the 2k and then you're talking about some cutting, instant swarf and it set the first polish before you make the jump to the next grit of your choice. Splash and go, cut and shine, not overly expensive and the best part, mark and sue with their service who could ask for anything more. Happy cutting everybody. Shapton pro rules!

I had a coworker tease me for buying a $60 rock. I doubt he'll have anything clever to say about my knives! It sharpens evenly and smoothly, unlike my cheap sushi supply stone, doesn't require soaking and VERY fast steel removal--the swarf is BLACK. It raises a very workable burr and though it cuts fast, I don't feel like the burr sneaks up on you, the stone is very consistent and gives good aural feedback, which helps a newbie like myself. The box does a good job, I just put it on a board mate so it won't slip, and the holes in the bottom mean I can just let the stone dry a bit and store it away. I doubt I will buy any other stone for a long while.
