Shapton Glass Stones are ideal stones to use for the Edge Pro since they are slow-wearing, splash, and go and will cut almost any steel on the market. They cut well and finish well and we were able to have these stones made specifically for the Edge Pro Apex. The stones measure about 6mm thick and will last a long time.

A key feature of the Edge Pro design is the lack of a clamp to hold the blade during sharpening. Once you use an Edge Pro, you will invariably find that the clamp is the problem with all the other systems. The clamp severely limits the size and shape of the knives you can sharpen. You can't do serrated knives, double edges, very large or small blades, flexible knives, and any knife that does not have a flat surface for the clamp. The clamp also limits the angles you can sharpen at. The Edge Pro Apex can handle almost any blade length, blade shape, and bevel angle. Brilliant!

In this set you get a number of accessories unique to Chefknivestogo including a water bottle, drill stop collar, platform magnet and 80 Grit Diamond plate. Add in the five custom Shapton stones and you have a set that is willing and able to take on almost any blade type or size and give you an edge that is hard to better even with the best hand sharpening stones and techniques.

  • Edge Pro Sharpening System

      Perfect, August 19, 2020

    Everything I like about the edge pro apex with everything I like about shapton stones. What's not to like. Fast shipping on top of that. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a consistent angle sharpener.

      Been to the ER twice this month already, August 17, 2020
    Posted By: David K Liu - verified customer

    I'm a bonafide idiot. Even though I'm a newbie sharpener I was able to get my pocket knives dangerously sharp. One time my hand slipped and my knife grazed my finger. I didn't think it was a big deal and it wasn't even painful but after a few seconds blood was pouring out, my finger was numb, and I realized I cut off the tip of my finger resulting in a trip the the ER. They had trouble stitching it up because it wasn't just a deep cut, it literally shaved off a part of my finger.

    I am still recovering from the cut (my first one on my toe finally just healed) but at least I can say I did a good job sharpening.

      Best Edge Pro package!, May 30, 2020
    Posted By: Thomas

    Great store! Fast Delivery. Mark is quick to answer questions. The Apex with Shapton glass and added accesories is a wonderful value. The sharpener is fantastic! As a complete newcomer, I was able to sharpen knives to a razor's edge. It still has a learning curve, though. I am improving on the blade tips, which have given me the most trouble, with each knife.

    The only negatives, I have, are very minor gripes. The fit and finish of the Shapton glass stones isn't consistent. Some have print and others do not. Also, some have Chamfered edges while some don't. Last, is the center of my 80 grit diamond stone isn't adhered tightly to the aluminum plate.

    Overall, this sharpening system is fantastic! And Chefknivestogo's package is the best! I highly recommend.

      Great sharpener, poor manual., December 30, 2017
    Posted By: Jimbo - verified customer

    The sharpener works great. I'm not much of a sharpening expert, but it really did improve my knives significantly. And my pocket knife. And my scissors. And... And... The the only place I would like to see improvement is the written manual. I had extra parts in my box (spring, magnet, etc.) that were not mentioned in the manual. The manual had crude line drawings instead of proper illustrations. I found the concepts hard to grasp without illustrations. It could also use some editing for grammar and style.My advice: watch the videos.

      Worth it, September 23, 2017
    Posted By: AR - verified customer

    This is a high quality, thoroughly well thought-out, set. The Shapton stones are impressive and consistent. The one coarse Edge Pro factory stone is much softer and therefore more messy. Once you have your head around holding the knife steady with the 'wrong' hand and working the Edge Pro (as you need to on one side of the knife), it is easy to get very good, even edges. The rare-earth magnet helps with this too.

      Great stuff!! , October 31, 2016
    Posted By: Louis Cypher - verified customer

    I've been a Shapton fan for years - so this was the icing on the cake. I'm on point with razor edges in about 1/4th of the time it normally takes. Edge maintenance is a breeze. May seem $$$ on the front end, but in the long run it pays for itself in time savings.

      Best system & kit available!, May 21, 2015
    Posted By: Hog Wylder - verified customer

    I don't have the entire kit that you see here but I use everything but the 6000k stone, I find a 6000k edge on my knives to be to thin & easy wearing. I use this mainly for my Bark River hunting & survival knives. They're all in CPM 3V or Elmax steel and this System have taken my knives to their next levels! I'm an avid hog hunter and anyone that has field dressed a feral hog knows that they play serious hell on a knife blade, the hide dulls them QUICKLY. Now I can get through 5 hogs with my Elmax and almost 4 with my 3V steels. I have never used the stock EP stones, I went straight for the Shaptons and have never been happier about my decision. Thanks CNTG for the great system....

      Shapton glass stones-noting bad to be said!, January 7, 2015
    Posted By: Max S. - verified customer

    I did not buy this kit, but I use the same set of stones that you get here. I have all of the standard edge pro stones and all of the tapes, including the Edepro 1200 grit stone. The thing is these shaptons are just phenomenal... They require so little water to use, they don't soak AT ALL, they polish and cut so fast yet wear extremely slow. They are literally magical for this system. Much thicker than the chosera and slower wearing these stones will last a good long time. The feeling of sharpening on the 4000 grit stone and up is... *put in-appropriate word here* just great. Can't really explain it, the 8k feels like you are sharpening on a thick layer of air... or fog? Hard to explain. Can't wait to try the 16k!!!! I really see no better stone for the edgepro than these glass stones. You can lap them with the edgepro leveling kit as well. I know people sing high praise for Chosera but all I can say is... BUY THIS ONE! Chosera stones produce too much swarf for me anyway.

      Product Review, September 2, 2012
    Posted By: AWR - verified customer

    About a year ago I was looking at the Edge Pro system and commented that it would be fantastic if it was offered with the Shapton Glass stones. Bingo. Yeah, it's that good. I understand the soul of hand sharpening, but, let's be honest, using this set I can get absolutely perfect results in 1/4 of the time. The harder to sharpen steels like VG-10 and ZDP-189? Butter.Literally, you could not replicate the edge achieved with this system unless you were an absolute master at hand sharpening. All of my knives, regardless of the type of steel, are now hair shaving, razor sharp with the exact angle I want on each blade. I don't know how you could do any better than this.
