140 Grit Diamond Stone Flattening Plate. This one measures 8" x 2.75". These plates are not dead flat like the DMTs or Atomas which are 2 or 3 times the price but they are perfectly fine for flattening your stones or if you want to champfer the edges or for quick metal removal. If you're concerned about this pay the extra money and buy the DMT XXC or the Atoma 140 grit diamond plate. We offer them both on our site.

4  More than pleased!, January 5, 2016
Posted By: Brian M (GopherBroke)

I ordered this on New Years Eve day, and it's already here (Jan 4)!
I ordered from somewhere else on the same day... and they have not even processed my order yet!
So kudos to Mark and the crew, again!

On to the topic!
I was surprised when the plate arrived that the entire plate (all 6 sides) are nickle/chrome plated, so no need to worry about rust :)
The finish on the plate looks great; no bare spots etc.

I'm the curious type and have to know everything! I've been that way since birth and every hobby/interest becomes an obsession. Each obsession lasts until a new topic comes along that interests me and then I veer off...

Flatness:
I measured the flatness of the plate with an Interapid dial indicator that is accurate to 0.0001"
What I found was that across the width of the plate (top, center, bottom) the plate has a twist that varied .0003"
Lengthwise the plate was within .0005".
The work surface being measured on was certified to be within 0.00005" over the entire 18X18 surface.

This is flat enough for me!
I've never used an Atoma, so I can't speak first hand... but I'm happy with my $30 diamond plate, and the $50 savings.

Only giving it 4 stars for now because I can't comment at all on longevity or life of the diamond.

3  Good for coarse shaping of a blade, not so much for flattening a stone, February 11, 2015
Posted By: Dan N.

I made the terrible newbie mistake of attempting to use a beautiful Blue Steel Japanese chef's knife to separate lamb chops (cut through a bone) and was rewarded with a 1mm deep nick in the blade edge. I used this basic diamond plate to re-shape the knife edge and prepare it for the remaining work, done on a succession of Shapton Pro stones (1000, 2000, 5000, 8000). The knife turned out great and I've been using it ever since. So as a very coarse shaping tool, this plate does the job.

The stone itself is gritty, but it arrived in a severely warped state sadly (each side was ~2mm higher than the center in a U shape)

Just posting this review so people know that there is the chance that this diamond plate can arrive in an unusable state for stone flattening.

I would suggest paying the extra for a DMT or, the one up from that's name escapes me for the moment. Especially if you live overseas like I do.

Flattens quickly and works up a slurry instantly. Great value and something everyone needs to accompany their stones.

Excellent value. I have two, one for knife repair and one for flattening/ slurry.
It's performed fantastically for tip repair. Cuts very quickly, with a decently even scratch pattern. By the same key, it brings up swarf instantly on a moderately hard stone.
Each plate did have one tiny flaw, a raised bit at some point along the edge. It's not a dealbreaker (I filed it right off) but it will need to be addressed before flattening finer stones. For the price, I think it's perfectly acceptable.
