The Shapton Professional Series #5000 will bring your edge to the polishing stage and at the same time is aggressive enough to remove substantial amounts of steel.

Shapton stones are designed to be harder, faster cutting, and denser than any other ceramic water stone on the market. Because they remove material quickly, the time required to hold an angle on the stone is reduced, making free hand sharpening much easier. Shapton water stones are made with finely-graded ceramic cutting media, which wears much more slowly than aluminum oxide and silicon carbide commonly found in other man-made water stones. These are splash-and-go stones, so no soaking is required. This results in a similar thickness of sharpening material lasting much longer. The 5K stone is a great stone to progress to after the 2K because of the further refining of the edge it will achieve. These stones measure 8.25” x 2.75” each.
