Shapton Kuromaku Sharpening Stones have different colors depending on the grade of coarseness.
Shapton stones are great at sharpening because of their high abrasive content - you can form an edge in no time.
Unique bonding technology allows the abrasives to perform at an optimum level, resulting in long-lasting sharpening stones.
This long-selling Japanese sharpening stone comes with a plastic case usable as a stone holder or base.
The Blue #1500 is a slight fine intermediate sharpening stone for a reasonable fast stock removal yet it starts to polish the edge.
Shapton stones don't need to be soaked in water before use. Just splash on some water, and start sharpening in seconds!
Can also be used as oilstone.
