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. This results in a similar thickness of sharpening material lasting much longer. The 1K stone is a great place to start when sharpening because of the toothy edge it will leave. The 5K is the perfect progression after the 1K for the refining and polishing of the edge it will achieve. These are splash-and-go stones so no waiting while they soak making them exceptional for students and professionals alike. These stones measure 8.25 x 2.75 each.

First stone purchase and these things are killer! Sharpened up the Mac Pro and some other beater knives to shaving sharp in no time. I'm a beginner and sharpening and these were super easy to use. Lightning fast shipping as well. Thanks!

Simply amazing stones. The 1K grit makes a servicable edge for kitchen work and the 5K polishes nicely. Then a bit of stropping with newspaper and you get scary sharp knives.

I was torn between the Shapton pro and glass. After purchasing these I am very happy. The cases double as stone holders during sharpening and the speed at which they remove metal is truly astounding. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Amazing stones. These stones are super hard and very fast cutting. I use them daily on my Japanese knives. The stones wear very slowly. This set is an great 1,2 punch for any professional chef
