Shapton is one of the most reputable and highly-recommended whetstone makers in the world, and that's a testament to their quality. The Shapton Kuromaku series (often called "Shapton Pro" in the west) are versatile, professional-quality whetstones that are also suitable for beginners.

This whetstone is suitable for many home applications, including sharpening kitchen knives, planer blades, chisels, axes, and more.

A 1000 grit whetstone is generally all most people need. However, if you want a razor-sharp blade with a fine polish, it's recommended to follow-up a 1000 grit sharpening with a 4000-6000 grit finishing.

In addition, if your blade is very damaged or dull, it's recommended to repair the blade on a coarse stone (200-800 grit) before sharpening on a 1000 grit stone.

If your blades are in decent condition and just need general regular sharpening and maintainence, all you'll need is a 1000 grit stone. 


  • Soak the stone for 5 minutes before the first use.
  • Soak for 30 seconds before subsequent uses (optional).
  • Finish your knife on the stone, occasionally sprinkling water to keep the stone wet.
  • Wash and dry your knife.
  • Gently rinse your whetstone under clean water and air-dry completely before storing.
