SharpEdge Diamond Flattening Stone Whetstones - #180
New SharpEdge Diamond Flattening Stone Whetstones - #180.
Whetstones are worn unequally (depending on their use) and in time they become more and more hollow. Despite a good grinding technique a hollow stone is an inefficient tool, and in extreme cases can cause some damage to the blade of the knife.
Water stones should be properly maintained because they can become grooved or wear into a hollow during regular use. This is an often-overlooked step in sharpening, yet an essential one if you want to maintain the flatness of your stone. Before sharpening, you should always check if the stone you are going to use is flat.
Diamond flattening stone does its job very well - it's very abrasive and will remove the material quickly, it will also remain flat and will not get thinner. The granulation of #180 is intended to flatten whetstones of lower granulations.
Before flattening you have to soak the whetstone in water and always splash some water on the diamond stone. Rub the whetstone against diamond flattening stone with circular movements until it becomes flat again.
