These Atoma diamond plates are cut to fit Wicked Edge handles and mounted on an aluminum plate for easy mounting to your blank handle set.
Atoma diamond plates aren't well known outside of Japan, despite their excellent quality and performance for sharpening and lapping. The mono-crystalline diamonds are electro-bonded to a stainless-steel sheet arranged in clusters across its surface, as opposed to being distributed evenly - appearing as dots when looking at the stones without magnification. This arrangement and the diamonds' high resistance to fracture causes the plates to cut more quickly, provides a consistent and even scratch pattern on the knife, and helps it to wear slowly.
Choose your grit(s) above
#140 is great for faster stock removal, re-profiling work and repairs
# 400 is also great for stock removal, mild reshaping of the bevel and repairs
#600 will help you touch up a moderately sharp edge, work your ceramics and leave you with a toothy finish
#1200 can be used for general sharpening, even on your ceramic knives. It leaves a smoother, but still toothy edge.
Please note that these atomas are not pre-mounted on Wicked Edge handles. You can order blank Wicked Edge handles here. If you would like us to assemble your handles, please note during check out the combinations of grits you would like to have on each handle set.
