This Shapton Glass Stone sharpens quickly and evenly. Exactly what you might expect from a high-quality sharpening stone. However, unlike what the name might suggest you won’t sharpen on glass. You sharpen on a high-quality Japanese water stone enhanced with a layer of low tempered glass to make sure it won’t bend. This stone can be used to sharpen practically any type of knife. From outdoor knives to kitchen knives and from pocket knives to chisels. Especially when you have a hard type of steel these stones will stand out. Think of the modern types of powdered steel you often find in high end pocket knives.
