Atoma 140x Replacement Diamond Surface Plate/Pad

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.

Replacement pad September 14, 2012
Reviewer: Rick Theory from S. Plainfield, NJ United States  
Having come from a DMC plate to the Atoma 140 made a huge difference in my sharpening kit.  It is so aggressive it flattens the stones much quicker saving me a lot of time.  

The diamonds are adhered to the pad in a pattern which reduces the "stiction" on the stones when mud or slurry build up as well making it easier to use.

This is also a great tool for when you need to remove a lot of steel quickly.  Thinning blades, rounding spines, broken tips and chipped edge repairs become far easier with this plate.

With the replacement pad it's easy to remove the old pad when it's worn out and replace it without having to buy the whole thing.  Another added bonus is you can add this pad to the back of an Atoma 1200 for a double sided plate.  The double sided tape is strong enough to last yet not impossible to remove.

This plate is an essential tool for anyone's sharpening set up.
