Care Instructions
Do Shapton stones need to be soaked in water before use?

No, Shapton stones do not need to be soaked except the very first time after purchase. Shapton dose recommend that on first use, you pre-soak the stone in water for five to six minutes to secure even smoother sharpening.

Which face of the sharpening stones should I use?
You can use either face, but we recommend that you start on the side where no letters have been printed.

Does a build up of slurry create any problems when sharpening?
It is fine to sharpen blades without washing away the slurry, but as Shapton sharpening stones have a high abrasive content, they can be used equally well with no slurry present.

What can I do to keep my stone flat and even?
Mark diagonal lines in pencil across the stone (creating a diamond pattern) Use a flattening stone in circular motion until the lines disappear.




Hi my name is Leigh, and I’m a chef from Newcastle Australia.

I’ve been cooking professionally for around 18 years in some of Australia’s top restaurants. (Currently cooking at Signal Box) 

I’ve created a small collection of high-quality Japanese Knives and Chef Knives that I recommend.
Basically, if I wouldn’t use it professionally then I don’t sell it! Read More
