Shapton Professional Series J Model #1500 "Blue"


THE most famous Japanese synthetic stone brand. One of the best cutting strength when it's used with alloys. Someone said it is like an alien technology. The cutting strength is so high, you don't need to press hard with these stones. Just let the stone do all the work.

Shapton stones are one of the hardest stones among various brands. Suited for skilled users who prefer hard stones. Hard stones are preferred by skilled users because the surface keep flat longer, therefore can be used for uraoshi as well. But hard stones are more difficult to use at the same time, so King stones that are softer might suit beginners.

Shapton stones are ceramic glue bonded, so pls do not keep them in the water too long. The stone will become brittle. Make sure you let it dry after use.
