The Shapton Pro series are synthetic, ceramic stones that provides 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 5000 grit is a fine polishing stone that can remove scratches and burrs with ease. Compared to common polish stones the surface does not feel slippery as much.
The stone should be soaked in water before use, and stored dry when finished. Size : (L) 8 3/8″ x (W) 3″ x (H) 5/8″
