SHAPTON SHARPENING STONES




With several types of abrasive media in an extensive range of grits, this line of premium sharpening equipment lets you develop a sharpening system tailored for a particular steel, application or workflow. Requiring only a quick spray of water before use, these durable stones cut quickly and yield consistent results. The line includes traditional single-grit Ha-No-Kuromaku stones suitable for most chisels and plane blades, as well as the innovative GlassStone and GlassStone Seven ceramic stones, ideal for use on modern powdered-metallurgy steels or steels with high chromium or vanadium content. To complement the line, we offer a stone pond, stone holders and stone-lapping supplies.

Grit Chart

GRIT CHART SHOWING SHAPTON STONES

The particle size in any given abrasive medium determines where it fits in the four stages of sharpening:

  1. Shaping: establishing the basic edge profile, usually required only after major damage
  2. Grinding: defining the geometry of the bevels and relief that form the edge
  3. Honing: preparing the blade for use
  4. Polishing: imparting a keener edge to a honed blade

The chart is divided into grit ranges suitable for each stage, with the last three split into low, medium and high sub-ranges (A, B and C, respectively). This provides a practical frame of reference to help make sense of the various micron sizes offered, and a way to compare Shapton products to other sharpening media we sell, each of which has been graded with its own range code according to this system. For a full side-by-side comparison between all sharpening materials we offer, search for “grit chart” on our website.
