The stone is fired at a high temperature with a mixture of coarse 1500 abrasive and a clay binder. It is 8-1/4" x 2-3/4" x 5/8" and is shipped in a plastic storage case that can be used as a stone holder while sharpening. The case has rubber feet to help prevent slippage.
These “Splash and Go” stones do not absorb water and do not need to be soaked. Shapton Traditional Stones are often called the Shapton Pro or Professional Stones. Each name refers to the same Shapton series of stones.
