2  Too much of a gamble to purchase again, September 25, 2019
Posted By: Patrick - verified customer

I have mixed feeling about this diamond plate. I bought it mostly out of curiosity but wouldn't buy it again after owning it for a while.

Iíve sharpened about a dozen knives on it, but with each, the plate is smoothing and producing a nicer edge. Straight off the 1000 side, I was able to S-cut through newspaper and the no-hold tomato slicing trick was no problem. A little stropping really brought out the edge.

UmmÖokÖso here is the bad part. The stone isnít exactly flat. I mean itís not just a little uneven where you need a straight edge and feeler gauges to noticeóItís obvious to the naked eye and is also easily felt as one corner is squished upwards and the diamonds arenít wearing in a two-inch section. Itís shape actually looks like a dirt-bike jump.

So I keep that corner away from me and the rest of the stone is pretty usable.

It flattened a 1k stone OK, but was a real pain compared to the Atoma 140ónight and day difference. The 6k was near impossible to flatten, I just gave up and did it with the correct tool. No big deal, I watched the product video and didnít expect to use it to flatten, but I was curious, so I tried, and now I know.

I guess its quality is commensurate to its price, but I would definitely pay the extra money and buy something that is flat, my five DMT plates and one Atoma are on a completely different and higher level of quality. Too bad they couldn't get this correct, because this would be a really good plate if it were just a little flatterÖ

I got this because my old diamond plate was really starting to rust in spots. I got a cheap one and wanted to spend a bit more hoping to get better quality. I use these to lap my whetstones.
After two uses is this plate, Iím noticing quite a bit of rust on both sides of the plate. I wash off all slurry and let it drip dry vertically. I contacted CKTG, hoping they could make it right for me. Mark was quick to respond to my inquiry. I was told basically this issue is very common and wonít affect performance. But I dont like rust particles flaking off into my razor hones...It looks like Iím stuck with another rusting diamond plate.

Anyway both the 400 and 1000 sides have multiple high spots that need to be knocked down if youíre using this to lap whetstones. Iit does seem to lap stones well enough.

Next time Iíll spend good money for a DMT or Atoma. Hopefully neither of those will rust on me.

It's easy to keep it from rusting. Use it with oil instead of water.

3  CKTG 400 / 1000 Diamond Plate, July 15, 2018
Posted By: blues - verified customer

Nice diamond plate. My version seems quite flat. Much more aggressive, at least early on, than the grit rating would seem to indicate. Even the 1000 grit side was pretty coarse on the first couple of knives it was used for. Hopefully it will smooth out or will be used only to flatten water stones.

4  400/1000 diamond plate, March 9, 2018
Posted By: Paul I. - verified customer

Seems flat to me,but I do not have a granite inspection plate to check it with. It works very good to flatten all my water stones. But then I tried to flatten a norton india oil stone. Even after trying many ways to clean the oil out of the stone, ( that did not work). I think the oil stone damaged the diamond plate some. Guy's I would not try to flatten a oil stone with a diamond plate. I finally got it flat by lapping it with silicon carbide grit on a flat iron plate. Latter a guy on youtube said india stones are oiled when made and can never be de-oiled, I agree. Good plate for the money, got it quick to. I am gong to order the 140.

5  An Outstanding Value., October 19, 2017
Posted By: Dave H. - verified customer

This day and age there are not many items one can say are an outstanding Value, This Diamond plate IS the Value for sharpening and keeping your hone stones Flat, I was wondering why it was taking so long to sharpen a straight razor? well my stones were a little dished out through the center so I was only sharpening on the edges of the stone , The Diamond plate changed all that, The Plate Can make a Huge difference in your sharpening too. I am going to buy several more.

4  Works but the long term jury is still out., February 25, 2017
Posted By: Howard E Constable - verified customer

I got this to lap a dished waterstone. It did a good job, but it looks like the stone may have worn away some of the 400 grit plate. We will have to see how it behaves in a year, for final judgement.On knives, both sides of the plate cut quickly, but the feedback seemed inconsistent. That could be me, though. I confess that I'm not a big fan of diamond plates for sharpening. Nevertheless, on a damaged, or very dull blade this would be a great starting point.

Posted By: Adam Albina - verified customer

I have used the 1000 side to lap waterstones for straight razors and both sides to sharpen kitchen knives. Fast cutter - works very well on hardened kitchen knives. Great price! Had it for about a year and still going strong.

5  Great affordable option to the higher priced plates, August 1, 2016
Posted By: Mike Baker - verified customer

I use the 400 grit side of this to lap my waterstones, the 1k side for setting bevels. Works well. And at the price point is easily replaceable if/when necessary.
