High Quality Abrasives

Shapton uses only high-quality abrasives. The 320 - 10,000 grit stones contain white alumina. The 16,000 grit stone uses calcined alumina. The grit makes for fast-cutting stones with excellent responsiveness.

Compatible with Shapton Accessories

Like all Shapton stones, the Rock Stars work with Shapton Accessories like the Shapton Stone Holder, the Shapton Sharpening Pond, and the Shapton Diamond Lapping Plate.

Versatile Size

Shapton Rock Star Stones share the same footprint as other Shapton Stones. They are 8 1/4" (210mm) x 2 3/4" (70mm). They are a versatile size that is great for almost any sharpening task from knives to woodworking tools and many things besides. The Rock Star Stones are 3/8" (10mm) thick.

Sharpening Supplies is an authorized retailer of Shapton Stones.

Q. The Instructions say I should soak these stones for 5 minutes before use. Is that necessary?

A. Shapton describes the Rock Star Stones as splash and go. Get them wet and they are ready for action. However, as an advanced usage tip, they say these stones are designed to become a little softer with prolonged water contact. If you desire a softer feel from the sharpening stone, Shapton suggests a 5-minute soak before use. This is a matter of personal preference but is sometimes desirable with brand-new or very dry stones that haven't been used in quite a while, particularly in the finer grits.

Q. What's the difference between the Shapton Rock Star Stones and the Shapton Glass Stones?

A. The Shapton Glass Stones and Rock Stars are made from the same abrasives and binder. The most significant difference is that the Shapton Rock Star Stones are 10mm thick and do not have a glass backing plate. The Shapton Glass Stones are 5mm thick and are mounted on a 5mm thick glass plate.
