There are a number of dilemmas a sharpener must address in selecting gear to outfit their sharpening kit. The Atoma diamond sharpening plates are a compelling answer to a number of those problems. The Atome 140 diamond plate is made of diamond abrasive imbedded in a metal pad in a dot matrix pattern which is mounted to an aluminum base. The 140 grit Atoma plate may be used as a coarse grit sharpening stone. When used on blades, the Atoma 140 removes steel aggressively to affect repairs quickly. The 140 is perhaps most often used as a flattening plate to repair and maintain dished water stones. Because of the coarseness of the abrasive and the hardness of the diamond it will abrade most any stone on the market and do so quickly. While there are other diamond abrasive plates on the market, the Atoma is noted for being extremely long lasting and thanks to the space between the diamond abrasive dots, the Atoma plates are not prone to suctioning themselves to stones the way many diamond plates will. The Atoma 140 grit plate can be renewed with an available 140 grit replacement pad which adds to the value of these plates. Measures 210mm x 75mm.

This stone is awesome. I use it to flatten all my water stones quickly and easily. It dose not stick to the stone at all very easy to use.

Can repair broken tips with good speed. A great tool...kind of coarse for lapping stones but works well.

I was fortunate enough to pick up thirteen new natural stones. Naturals never come flat. I had a lot of work ahead of me to flatten the stones to usable condition. This plate is coarse, flat and made quick (relatively speaking) work of flatening my naturals. I ended up getting a DMT 220 use after the 140 to get a finer finish but it was putting a very slight groove along the face of the stone so I don't even bother now. After the Atoma 140, I use a nagura to condition the surface and go straight to sharpening. Highly recommended for natural stones or badly dished artificials.
