The Shapton Pro series are synthetic, ceramic stones that provide high performance when sharpening knives and tools. The sharpening power is close to that of a diamond sharpening stone and will maintain a flat surface for a long time. The plastic case that is useful for transportation also serves as a base to stabilize the stone when sharpening.
The 2000 grit can be used as a medium finish and polishing stone, will remove scratches from coarser stones, smooth’s and prepare the edge for final polishing to a razor edge. Mostly used for touching up a blade that doesn’t require major sharpening.
The stone should be soaked in water before use, and stored dry when finished. Size is 8-1/4” x 2-3/4” x 5/8”.
