A favorite amongst sharpeners across many mediums, the Shapton Professional series is designed with speed and durability in mind. Non-absorbent, these stones are splash and go, not requiring any soaking. In addition, we find they cut very quickly and while harder stones, they provide very good feedback. Each stone in the Professional series comes with a slotted storage box which conveniently doubles as a stone holder.

The Shapton Pro 320 grit stone is quite versatile as it can be used for moderate repair work and is also a great grit for setting a new edge bevel or starting a progression. The stone cuts fast and is a logical option for edge setting on harder steels like Powder Metal variants. 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.

3  Dishes quickly, November 20, 2019
Posted By: Aaron

As the description says, yes, this is a fast cutting stone. But sadly the durable part of the description is not what I experienced. It dishes quickly, so if you are good about keeping your stones flat you will quickly end up with a lot of this stone in the bottom of your sharpening basin. Coupled with the fact this stone is small and thin to begin with, and I had to replace it quicker than any other stone to date. If you don't do a lot of sharpening and just want a fast cutting stone for occasionally re-setting a bevel of dealing with the infrequent little edge chip, this would work well. But if you do a lot of sharpening (e.g. professional work) I would not recommend this stone - it just wears out too quickly.

Newbie at sharpening, but this stone took out some significant chips out of a couple Miyabi Kaizen knives. Took a number of strokes and requires rinsing / rewetting, but seems to do a great job.

Recently started taking on friend and family knives and needed something well below the 700 bester that had previously started my rotation. This was available and is an absolute joy to get started on in comparison, especially with knives in really bad shape.

Great site to purchase from. Stone came packaged securely. This has a nice feel and feed back when using. Plan on picking up the 1000grit and 5000 grit to finish the set. I mainly use these for kitchen and pocket knives.

4  a nice coarse stone, July 12, 2016

This stone definitely dishes slower than the antique budget stones of my grandfather's that I had been using for the task. I liked this stone better than the 120--still cuts quick, a good deal smoother, muddier and more responsive. I've been able to jump right up to 800 or 1000 grit with a little extra time, which I couldn't say for my diamond plates. A good option for smoothing bevels, setting a new edge, and repair work.

I have owned this stone for a few months now, and have sharpened many knives; my own, and others. The stone has not wore much in that time. It doesn't dish, or wear quickly when in use either. It is a great first stone in a progression (320, 1k, 5k)... but it isn't the best for thinning IMO.

5  First water stone, July 7, 2016
Posted By: ut_ron - verified customer

Never used water stones before and I am really loving how well they work versus the carbide sharpeners I have used before. Trust me if you have not tried water stones do so. It is a water stone but a splash and go type so does not require a soak.This is a good stone to set a bevel if the knife is not too beat up (for those use diamond plate). It develops mud quite fast and is pretty fast cutter. I am enjoying sharpening now a whole lot more sense I have found Japanese water stones.

Posted By: Kendall Phillips - verified customer

I bought the shapton 320 because I was trying to even out the bevel on my kohetsu ha40. I'm left handed and it was a 70/30 grind and I couldn't seem to get good bevel on the left side. I was able to really get one on in maybe 10-15 minutes so it really cuts well. I will be careful on my other babies when I use it. My one regret is not getting a full set of them because this stone works so nice on my other hard knives too and it cuts my time more than in half

Great stone , cuts as fast if not faster than a 325 grit diamond but doesn't leave a deep of scratches. Stone is splash and go it might absorb a little water but it is very minimal. So far I have reprofiled zdp-189 and super blue with this stone no problems. If I ever wear this stone out I would buy another .

This stone is amazing, it removes metal fast, it does not dish or at least takes a ling time to do dish. It is hard not soft like the Naniwas super stones. It does not need to be sprayed over and over, it creates a slurry. It seem to slow wear and stays flat no need to lap it, at least after 3 knives. But the one thing I like the most is how fast it is. I got the Naniwa Chosera 400 and I think the Shapton pro 320 is faster or maybe about the same.

Shapton 320 makes easy work of chips, broken tips and setting a new bevel. Nice hard stone that dishes very slow, and who can complain about the splash-n-go.
