Shapton Glass Series line-up


Please check the line-up of Shapton Glass Series here!




Shapton Glass Series whetstone is one of ideal artificial whetstones.


There is wide range of lower to higher grit whetstones like lower grit #120 grit to #30000 grit.

It is easy to keep on flat sharpening surface that is harder to be dented even though it is lower grit whetstone.

Shapton company invests lots of time and money to their research that makes great high technology products.

Shapton Glass Series is much easier to sharpen blades for us with trouble free compare with past artificial whetstones.

If I say one thing of negative side of problem with this series, it is little bit fragile, so if we hit the glass series whetstone on the hard corner or drop down to the floor, it might be chip the corner or broken.
Most whetstones are the same, so it is not too much problem from lots of positive side of the whetstone.

It makes good feeling when I sharpen the whetstone too.

Yoshikane Tamamoku Wagyto w/ V2, VG10, & White




Finally, we have got three types of Yoshikane Wagyuto Tamamoku 240mm V2, VG10, and White II steel Blade knife.

It has taken for over 6 months.

After earthquakes and Tsunami disaster in Tohoku, Japan, many blacksmiths has been close their business.
Japanese fisherman use Makiri knife often during fishing and fillet fish.

Those Makiri knives had been made those closed business blacksmiths, so there are lots of demand, but not enough supply, and Yoshikane was asked to make thousands of Makiri knives for fishermen, and they accepted to make them, so they had been so busy, and no time to make their own orders last several months.
I have heard that they are O.K. now what they are back in their business, and they can make own orders.
