Made with finely graded ceramic cutting media, Shapton stones are designed to be harder, faster cutting, and denser than any other ceramic water stone on the market. They naturally wear much more slowly than aluminum oxide and silicon carbide commonly found in other man-made water stones.

This results in a similar thickness of sharpening material lasting much longer. The 1K stone will start you off with a nice, toothy edge. The 5K is next in the progression for refining the edge. The 8K adds a polish and mirror finish to your knives that will make them the envy of all the other chefs! Just splash and go with these stones, no waiting while they soak. These stones measure 8.25 x 2.75 each.

**Please note, we are now a registered dealer with the factory in Japan and the pro stones are called by the Japanese name Kuromaku. We will be providing warranty support for them here in the United States if you purchase them from us. The labels changed but the stones are identical and these ship from our office in Madison Wi.

These stones are simply awesome. I did a lot of reviewing and even more searching before deciding on the Shaptons. And, Chef Knives to Go had the best price. Furthermore, Mark is a stand-up, straightforward guy and a pleasure to deal with. I plan on making all future related purchases here.

5  Excellent stones, February 5, 2016
Posted By: Dan N.

I've now had the Shapton Pro 1K, 2K, 5K and 8K stones for over a year. These are fantastically hard and cut very quickly. I soak them for only about a minute before use--they really could just be "splash and go" if you're in a real hurry. I use them on my White steel (shiro-ko) and Blue steel (ao-ko) Japanese single edge (yanagi, usuba) and double-edge (gyuto/chef) knives and with very little work I get razor sharpness and long lasting edges. I have used, and will never again use, cheap stones. These Shapton stones are pricey, but the result is a night-and-day difference.

These things work awesome. I've been sharpening a hand planer, some kitchen knives, and a draw knife. They make the sharpening process quick and easy and get the blades sharp enough to shave with. Just watch out where you do the sharpening or you may leave a stain from the fine metal (I tried it on a deck once and it didn't completely wash out of the wood). Fantastic sharpening stones.

The Shapto Pro set is the best I have tried. They are harder then typical wet stones and cut well - time will tell if they last longer but I would expect they would. My go to stones...

These stones are great. They were recommended to me and your store had the best price anywhere I could find. Have told many about your store.
