Shapton's Traditional Series Stone is the original "Splash 'n Go" Sharpening Stone. Just pull out your stone, use the convenient field case and holder to plant your stone in place, splash water on your stone and start sharpening in under a minute! The Shapton Traditional Stones are available in 10 Grit sizes, easily identifiable by their individual colours. This large variation in grit sizes ensures plenty of ways to sharpen your tools, allowing you to remove old material with a coarser (lower number) grit, or polish and finish an edge with a finer (higher number) grit. Got a plane or a chisel that needs sharpening? perhaps a pair of scissors? Then the Shapton Traditional stones are the stones for you!
The rough side (vitrified) has 220 grits. Perfect for those that need the aggression of the 220 grit for occasional establishing of a new edge or for those that sharpen both western and Japanese knives regularly. Remember the 220grit side is not for everyday use and will wear faster. Model Characteristics Stone construction - 220 grains per sq. cm. Cleaning - NOT RECOMMENDED for Dishwasher.
