The Atoma Diamond Plate line is one of our most popular alternatives to water stones amongst our sharpening aficionados. This line consists of an aluminum base plate and a diamond impregnated sharpening pad. The diamonds are arranged on the pad in a dot pattern, allowing for a much more consistent and even scratch pattern on the knife edge. The diamond plates are an excellent alternative to powered devices such as grinding wheels or sanding belts, due to the reduced heat build-up. This 140 grit plate is cut to fit the Edge Pro. These plates are excellent for wear-resistant metals like ZDP-189 or M390. This grit is also great for quick stock removal for resetting bevels or tip and edge repair. They are even great for keeping your other Edge Pro water stones flat. The layout of the diamonds keeps the plate from sticking to the stone during the flattening process.

I have used this 140 grit diamond stone to sharpen hundreds of different knives on the edgepro. I run a small sharpening business for local chefs, and switching to the atoma plate for fast reprofiling simplified my workflow substantially.

Most chefs abuse their edges on a grooved steel, and when I receive them they have worn away their primary edge completley. A good deal of steel must be removed to create a new edge, and the atoma plate just chews through steel and keeps on taking it. The edges are always perfect since the "stone" can not dish.

After a few dozen knives, the plate will mellow out and not cut quite as fast in the middle. However, the edges you can create get better as the plate is broken in. I would estimate my very well used 140 to be closer to a 300 grit. I generally use this stone to do 95 percent of the work, then switch to a 1000 grit shapton stone to knock off the burr and polish the faces of the edge. I will be purchacing a higher grit atoma as soon as they come back into stock here!

Main advantage is that it does not dish. Probably a bit faster than the EP 120 stone.

Rating is lower because the diamonds are in metal that rusts. I must have stored the stone moist, because I found rust spots in between the diamonds after a few days.
Also, the finish of mine was not great. A ridge of metal at the top was elevated higher than the diamonds. No biggy, but I expected a bit better for this price.

WOW!! This this is great for reprofiling and is super fast. It might seem a bit spendy at first, but once you get it and use it some, you will know it was worth it.
