ATOMA DIAMOND GRINDSTONE

ATOMA DIAMOND GRINDSTONE

We are very happy to offer you these diamond sharpening stones, the Atoma brand, by the Japanese manufacturer Tsuboman. The manufacturer is known for its high quality and technically refined products -- very important with this kind of product, as there is a wide difference in the quality and durability of the different diamond stones on the market. They are solid, without the large holes in the plate one often finds, which can catch smaller blades and do a lot of damage to the edge. Their surfaces are in general well made, flat with evenly distributed and precisely graded diamond chips. The chips themselves are exclusively monocrystaline diamonds, which are much more expensive than polycrystaline, and are more durable. They are fused to the plate using an electrolytic process.

Wet the sharpening surface before every use! Never use diamond stones dry. This is bad for the surface of the diamond stone, and will not sharpen well, either. You should also be careful not to put too much pressure on the surface when sharpening, and absolutely not near the edges of the plate, as this can deform the plate and scrape off the diamond coating.

Diamond sharpening stones are, if one takes into account their strengths and weaknesses, a real alternative to wet grinding wheels and sharpening stones. Conventional sharpening stones sooner or later become hollowed with use, while diamond stones remain flat. One cannot flatten the back of a chisel or plane iron on a grinding wheel, but a diamond stone is ideal for the job. They are also ideal for removing lots of material, to grind out a notched edge, for instance. But for honing an edge, sharpening stones are much better, as the diamond stones can not be made with a fine enough grit for a really good edge.
