About

Shapton is known for producing high-quality sharpening stones for decades. The quality of these stones is second to none, and that shows in the result of sharpening. Unlike a lot of other water stones that you have to soak for 20minutes in order for them to work properly, all the Shaptons require is a quick spray with a bottle or drizzle and you are good to go.

One thing you need to have in mind is that if you store these in a place that can reach temperatures below zero when they are full of water they can crack! So in wintertime, keep them someplace warm.
