Unlike what the name suggests, you do not sharpen on glass but on high-quality Japanese waterstones. The tempered glass is used only as a base for an extremely high-quality whetstone.
The stones are not watered, but only sprinkled with a little bit of water. You can start sharpening immediately. Thanks to their homogeneous structure, the stones quickly remove material. This way, you achieve a fast sharpening result and extremely sharp blades. The glass plate allows the stones to be used until the end.
The result is very uniform and even. Sharpening does not result in any major scratches, which must normally be ground laboriously away with a fine grit. Sharpening enthusiasts worldwide therefore appreciate these stones very much. The Shapton Glass Stones are among the best whetstones available on the market.
This set includes a Shapton Glass Stone HR grit 1000 medium and a Shapton Glass Stone HR grit 6000 fine as well as the Shapton Glass Stone whetstone holder for an incredibly comfortable sharpening experience.
It is also particularly important that the rubber feet are non-slip. This prevents the holder from sliding across the work surface.
