Features Technical Specs

Atoma 140x Diamond Plate

For extreme stock removal to repair very damaged edges and broken knife tips. A safe alternative to powered grinding with no worries of heat build up that can damage tool temper. Also intended for flattening of Japanese sharpening stones.

Atoma diamond plates are somewhat different from other diamond plates. To prevent clogging, when used as a stone flattener, the diamonds have been electro-deposited with surface interruption. When the diamond surface becomes worn, as they all do, only the thin surface plate is replaced - not the entire (complete) base. This makes for a "green" solution that is more cost effective as well.

Atoma diamond plates are reported to be the fastest cutters while providing the smoothest surfaces (on tools and stones) and also giving us hand sharpeners a flattening plate that doesn't stick to stones during lapping.

When lapping polishing stones I follow with our
synthetic nagura to smooth out the stone's surface texture which allows for greater performance. This combination works great and I use it on all of my polishing stones.

Atoma diamond plates are recommended for flattening both Japanese synthetic and the very hard Japanese natural stones.

Size - 210mm x 75mm x 10mm

Atoma Plate (140) April 16, 2015
Reviewer: Tanner from Winnipeg, Canada  
I have this for when/if necessary to do major rehab work to a blade.  You can use a much higher angle without worrying about digging into your stone.  Also works to flatten stones (I wish I got an Atoma before, would have been a 2-for-1 deal).

The missing link April 12, 2015
Reviewer: Ben F. from Seattle, WA United States  
The Atoma 140x is the industry standard for a low grit flattening/reapair diamond stone. This stone makes all your other stones work right.

Worth every penny April 11, 2015
Reviewer: Kevin Mandeville from Massachusetts  
This diamond plate is great for keeping all your stones flat and even. Also very handy to remove a lot of metal from a knife in the event you need to make a major repair.

Super useful for flattening April 9, 2015
Reviewer: Bryan Kim from sunderland, MA United States  
Back awhile ago, a coworker had gotten one of these to flatten his whetstones.  I was so impressed with the performance I had to pick one up myself.  Prior to this, I was using a giant rough stone to flatten my whetstones but it wasn't perfectly level so I had a uneven areas.  After using the atoma, my pitting and bowls were never an issue again!

Diamond Plate December 5, 2014
Reviewer: Kenneth Anderson from San Diego, CA United States  
I bought Dave's Core set of stones and will likely use the Atoma diamond plate after a year or so to clean up the stones... I'm giving it 5 stars because it looks like 5 star quality.
