For knife enthusiasts keeping their knives sharp and in peak condition is integral to owning high end cutlery. This coarse 220 grit water stone from the Shapton Glass line makes setting bevels and repairing chips easy. Like all Shapton Glass stones this stone is designed to handle the most abrasion resistant steels with aplomb. The stone is renowned for cutting fast, wearing slowly, and giving extremely precise bevels and is coveted for requiring no soak, only a quick splash of water to get working. The white ceramic stone is mounted on a glass backing plate. The stone (without glass plate) measures 210mm x 70mm x 5mm. The glass plate adds an additional 5mm to the thickness of the stone.

  Shapton Glass 220 Water Stone
Posted By: Brad - verified customer

Excellent fast cutting stone especially good on very hard PM stainless steels like ZDP 189 and HAP 40 semi. Great for re-profiling and edge setting. Very aggressive. Have not used anything more aggressive on those steels except Diamond.

Ive tried many many sharpening stones and methods and use water and oil on a daily basis. These Shapton Glass Stones are the fastest most reliable system I have found. In particular the 220 grit replaced my go coarsest stone (DMT EXTRA Coarse) and exceeds it in every possible way, the diamond wore down quickly and settled at about 800 grit making it worth less for everything but flattening water stones. This 220 grit stone does in about what 2-5min what took me better part of hour with diamond and is much easier on your body due to lack of heavy pressure needed. Don't do what I did and put of getting a super coarse water stone only to regret the hours of agony once you do...

Just got my 220 in the mail today. Shipped in the usual greased-lightning time. I immediately unwrapped it. It was sealed tight and new in from the factory, very professional looking.The stone is nice and wide. This is my first Shapton and it did not disappoint!Took my knife from 220, to 750, soft/hard Arkansas. It was already a hair shaver, but I continued on to 6,000 and 12,000 for the scary sharp edge that I must have. If you don't have a good course stone, I recommend this, especially for the price. Quality Quality.
