The Shapton Professional #8000 waterstone is a fine waterstone that gives an excellent edge and will polish hard steels, especially the high carbon edges of Japanese tools and knives. It is capable of bringing up a mirror finsih and will leave all edges wonderfully sharp.

As with the rest of the Shapton Professional range, the #8000 is manufactured to maintain flatness for a relatively long time. For best results, we recommend regular light flattening of the stone with either a diamond plate or sandpaper on glass.

The #8000 stone is a finishing stone and for many users will be as high in the grit as will ever be required. For those looking to go finer still, especially for kitchen knives and smoothing planes, the #12,0000 Shapton Professional stone is the next and final step in the range.

Razor honing

Absolutely love it

Terrific stone

A long time ago I purchased a Tormek and whilst it does a great job there is quite a long time between an edge needing honing and resharpening on the 1000 grit tormek watre stone, hence my purchase of this product. It now fills the gad nicely and is performing exceptionally. Very easy and quick to return that razor sharp edge.
