The 1x6 Atoma plates use advanced diamond technology designed to cut faster, last longer and leave a more consistent finish at each grit level. The 1x6 Atoma diamond plates are secured to a standard 1x6" aluminium blank which is compatible with the Edge Pro, Hapstone, and TSProf, and 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 Atoma is great for heavy reprofiling and removing deep chips from blades
The #400 Atoma 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 Atoma 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 Atoma refines scratch patterns and then prepares the bevel for use with Japanese water stones such as #1000 Chosera
