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.

Shapton stones don't need to be soaked in water before use. Just splash on some water, and start sharpening in seconds!
