As with all water hones, Shapton water-stones require periodic re-flattening.
NOTE: Shapton recommends pre-soaking stones only before the first use for a maximum of five minutes. After the first use, splash water as needed. They also suggest beginning with the side that does not contain printing however both sides can be used for sharpening.
For over 50 years Shapton has been the leading manufacturer of sharpening stones. Known for their durability and longevity, Shapton stones are uniquely designed with tempered glass to prevent decay and extremely hard. Shapton’s Kuromaku Professional Stones use a colour coding system to identify the grit of each stone. The entire series is arranged from extra coarse (120) to micro fine (30,000).
