About This Item
SHAPTON Glass Stone 500 grit thicker version, 29.4 micron 210mmX70mmX17mm (stone 12mm/glass 5mm) for Rough Finishing Whetstone for Cooking Knife
The plastic case is also used as stone holder, when we sharpen the glass series and professional series stones.
SHAPTON Item NO 50106 It is thicker version of #500 glass stone. It is one of my favorite Shapton Glass Series. Shapton sets exactly the same particles sizes basically, and it does not contaminate with larger size particles, so we feel higher grit than the grit indicated by Shapton. I feel #800 or #1000 in other brand whetstones.
Shapton Glass #500 grit is very fast cut on the rough whetstone, and I do not feel slipping the blade on the whetstone, and I feel that it grips very well and keeps on losing the steel and iron, when I sharpen the blades on the hone.
