The Shapton Professional series of stones are designed to provide a quick cutting, splash and go sharpening experience yet does not compromise on the quality of edge achieved at various grit levels. These qualities, along with the high level of wear resistance exhibited by the Shapton Pro line, make the stones one the best reviewed series on our site. The 1500 grit Shapton Pro is a user favorite in kitchen knife progressions. Many experienced sharpeners enjoy this stone at the end of a full progression, just prior to a higher grit finishing work. While results will vary by steel and the treatment that the steel receives, the 1500 grit Shapton Pro is usually described as providing the right balance of refinement and tooth for most kitchen applications. 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. They also have the Japanese paper label on them since we're importing them directly from the factory in Japan.

  Great sharpening Stone, September 28, 2019
Posted By: Paul - verified customer

I sharpened my first knife on this stone this week and I've got to say that I am glad to have such a fine tool to use in my kitchen. It works perfectly and the edge on my knife is superb.

  Straight razor bevel setter., May 9, 2018
Posted By: Jack

I recently bought this stone to set the initial bevels on my razors. I had been doing all the honing on a natural coticule but this 1500 sets the bevels quicker and reduces the wear on my natural stones.

  Great product , July 12, 2016
Posted By: Juan P. - verified customer

I bought this after reading so many positive reviews. The stone shipped really fast. The case double's up as a stone holder so that's a great bonus. The stone is hard and dish slow. Leaves a nice aggressive edge but refined enough to accomplish any kitchen task. I don't think it to be fast but neither slow. My fist impressions oftb weren't posite and I didn't like the feel of it. It does gives you feedback but is not pleasant, it gets better after about 5 sharpening section's, better about 8, but by then is dishing a little too much for my liking and it takes longer to flatten it again. But it does leaves a great edge and that's I didn't take any stars.

Great Stone. The size of it handles 240mm Gyutos well and it cuts like a dream!

The shapton pro 1500 hones very well and leaves a finer scratch pattren than the 1000. It is a little slower to get a burr but not much slower. After getting a sharp edge I can go to my 5000 grit stone without needing a coarser intermiate middle stone.
