The Wicked Edge Precision Sharpener (WEPS) is at its finest with the superior Shapton Sharpening Stones. The 5000 and 8000 grit stones will put the exceedingly fine edge on your knife that Tom Blodgett puts on the Jende Original Knife. If you have a Jende knife and have had trouble keeping the right angle when sharpening and getting the same edge on your knife, this is the system for you.
The Shapton waterstones need to be sprayed with water during use and, unlike the Chosera, they don't need soaking beforehand. Also, waterstones wear so they need to be lapped occasionally and the angles need to be checked with an angle gauge each time you use them. These are the finest waterstones there are, offering the best results over any other stones. It is worth any extra effort these stones need in caring for them.
