The Shapton glass stone is the essential sharpening tool for any professional or home cook serious about knife care. A synthetic stone with a high degree of uniform abrasion, the Shapton needs no soaking. Compared to other synthetic stones, it creates an edge faster and doesn't wear down as quickly. So the Shapton glass stone makes shaping your knife easier and more convenient. And even when the abrasive surface becomes paper-thin, this stone still performs, thanks to its sturdy glass backing plate.
Shapton glass stones are also engineered to produce no odor, unlike regular whetstones, which can leave an unpalatable odor on knives unless they're carefully cleaned. This is a distinct advantage for cooks who need to quickly shape their knives in the heat of service.
The Shapton HR (High Resistance) glass stone series is suitable for both stain-resistant and carbon steel knives. Use the #1000 is coarse enough to fix small chips, and the #4000 will leave a smooth finish.
The two stones slot into the field holder so you can take them with you anywhere. It will fit one more stone as well.
