The 1x4 Atoma plates use advanced diamond technology designed to cut faster, last longer and leave a more consistent finish at each grit level.
The 1x4 Atoma diamond plates are secured to a standard 1x4" aluminium blank which is compatible with the KME System. It can also be used as slip stones, field stones and pocket stones.
The Diamonds are electro-bonded to the steel sheet then adhered to the aluminium backing.
Atoma Diamond plates can be used dry, or with water.
The #140 is great for heavy reprofiling and removing deep chips from blades.
The #400 works great for lighter reprofiling work on knives with lighter chips and can be a great stone to use when reprofiling a factory bevel.
The #600 leaves a consistent scratch pattern and sets up the bevel for either the #1200 Atoma or low grit Japanese water stones stones like the #400 Chosera.
The #1200 refines scratch patterns and then prepares the bevel for use with Japanese water stones such as #1000 Chosera.
