Shapton Professional Series stones are made to be harder and denser than other ceramic water stones. They are made with finely-graded ceramic cutting media which wears much more slowly than the aluminum oxide and silicon carbide found in most other man-made stones. There is no soaking for these stones, they are made to be splash and go, which means that the stones will last much longer! The 30K stone is one of the finest man-made stones available. It will leave a shiny mirror finish and is the best stone for finishing straight razors. These stones measure 8.25” x 2.75” each. They come in a storage box that doubles as a stone holder. *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.

Was skeptical about this stone, and it's also very pricey. I was not disappointed, great stone, beautiful, highly recommend.
