More info

When it comes to sharpening accessories, the Shapton whetstones always rank high in the list of preferences of Japanese cooks. Shapton is a renowned brand that is known for the great efficiency and durability of its sharpening stones. No blunt blade will have a reason to be as long as there is a Shapton whetstone in your kitchen!

This sharpening stone has medium fine grains 1000, which is perfect for the maintenance of almost all knives. For instance, it is great for sharpening the edges of blades that are slightly starting to become blunt. Using it at a regular basis, this whetstone is enough for the maintenance of most standard kitchen knives (for razor sharp blades, we recommend using stones with finer grains).

Given its 15 mm of thickness, this stone is ideal for professional use. Moreover, it is sold with an orange case that is actually very functionaI. It can be used as a base or stand for placing the stone during usage, and it has 4 non-slip feet that provide great stability. The bottom surface is perforated, which is ideal for the drying of the stone.

The composition of this stone is highly enriched with ceramic. That is why this stone does not need to be pre-soaked in water before usage. It is enought to slightly humidify it, and then you can immediately start sharpening your knives. Ceramic is also known for giving fast results, thus this whetstone allows you to sharpen your knives in a faster way!

Furthemore, ceramic is also characterised for its hardness. Therefore, this Japanese whetstone wears off at a slower rate when compared to a standard composite whetstone (assuming the same rate of usage). This makes the stone lasts longer, and to make sure it preserves its great quality over time, we recommend you to follow these tips:

- Do not let it in water as this would make the stone more fragile.

- Do not let it rest under the sun, even when drying it, and do not use a hot dryer that could cause cracks on the stone's surface.

- Do not use the white side for sharpening your knives; you only need the pink part!

- After usage, you need to clean the stone with a humid cloth to remove the fillings that appeared as a result of the sharpening (do not use soap!). Finally, let it dry at room temperature.
