5  My Work Horse!, August 12, 2019
Posted By: Stephen Davidson - verified customer

When it comes time to rehone my straight razors, this stone is my work horse. This stone is a splash and go and is exactly like my Shapton 5K Kuromaku only a touch smoother. The speed is pretty much the same and this stone also cleans up the same way as well. This is where I start before progressing to my finishing stones.

5  Shapton Pro 8000 Review, January 14, 2019
Posted By: @just_broome - verified customer

A very good stone that's responsive and snappy.
I use Chosera 800 -> 3000 -> Shapton Pro 8000 and get scary sharp kitchen knives.
I'm not a professional and I don't have a ton of knives, but I prefer to sharpen my own and regular hand held sharpeners were ruining my knives! So I learned how to do it right and this tool helps me get a tremendous edge for my kitchen tools. My friends and family appreciate me keeping their knives in shape too, cause who doesn't Zen out a little when on a whetstone =) and I don't mind doing it. Keeps my in practice!

Got the stone on the advice of Dr. Matt, allowed me to keep my straight razor just as sharp as it can be.

One of the best. I prefer it to the Naniwa Snow White Jyunpaku. I'm still testing it - on razors - and am not sure whether I prefer it or the Shapton Glass HC which I also bought from Mark. The HC Glass 8k polishes a little more and makes it easier to see any defects you've missed bring the razor bevel up, but other than that they're very similar.Cheers, Steve

Very fine finish, but once that you tried Japanese natural stones, it's hard to go back....

Hard to beat the shapton 8000 fine polish stone. Doesnt clog or dry up and leaves a finer scratch patten than other 8000 man made stones I have. The resign base ceramic matrix of course make it feels more artififial than other non ceramic made stones...so the slurry is less natural and the feedback different..but makes fast work of polishing my japanese plans and chisels.
