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.
