Grit: #120
Origin: Japan

The Shapton Professional #120 is a coarse waterstone suited to heavy material removal on highly worn blades or blades with small chips in the cutting edge.

The #120 removes material quickly, though it remains a hard-wearing stone that tries to keep itself close to flat as long as possible. Due to it's hardness, we recommend regular light flattening with a diamond plate or sandpaper on glass.
As this stone is capable of heavy removal, it will dictate the geometry of all tools and knives being used on it. Maintaining it flat will give the best results.

Japanese whetstones (also called water stones) – both natural and synthetic – are known for their quick-working qualities, not only for Japanese blades, but also for their Western equivalents. The small particles that do the cutting are loosely bound together in the stone, and so during sharpening with the whetstone, the surface particles are quickly washed out, allowing new, sharp, particles to start working on the blade. These whetstones must be lubricated only with water!

Whetstones come in a range of grits:

#80 to #500 grit is typically used to repair knives with chipped edges.
#600 to #2000 grit are used to sharpen dull knives.
#3000 to #6000 grit are finishing stones and are used to refine your knife edge.
#8000~ grit are Super finishing stone.
If you are using your knife to cut meat it is best to stop at between #4000 and #6000 grit as you can bend your knife edge on the muscle.

Good solution for polishing edge, or removing excessive oxidation from carbon knives.

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.

Handle

The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
