Atoma Diamond Plate - #1200

$82.00 $108.00

Atoma Diamond Sharpening Plates can be used in place of Whetstones and Natural Sharpening stones. They do tend to take more material, so it is recommended that you only use light pressure when using them.

The Atoma #1200 is the perfect choice for those who want a longer-lasting 1000 grit whetstone. When you compare the finish from a 1000 grit whetstone and the Atoma 1200 you will see there is little to no difference between them. The Atoma 1200 is not recommended for flattening your whetstones due to the very compact nature of the surface.

There is a second use for these diamond plates as they maintain their flat profile and that is to flatten whetstones and Natural sharpening stones. All whetstones and Natural stones will cup over time from use but by using the Atoma plates you can flatten any irregularities after each use. If you want more information have a look at –

Atoma Diamond Plates
Atoma Diamond sharpening plates are made by Tsuboman, a company based in Kure known for producing extremely high-quality products. Atoma Diamond sharpening plates are made of mono-crystalline diamonds as the abrasive surface on stainless steel (body made of 10mm thick machined aluminium plate). Unlike the Whetstones and Natural sharpening stones, these plates remain flat after continued use, and the diamond surface plate can be replaced after a few years without buying another baseplate.

Atoma Diamond Plate - #1200

So far, this stone has demonstrated the performance and quality I have come to expect from Japanese (and German) tools over the years.
