Grooves Clear the Waste

Flattening water stones creates a lot of waste material, and all that stuff has to go somewhere. On a flattening stone without grooves, this slurry of water and stone can build up and get in the way. All that stuff can create suction between the flattening stone and the stone being flattened. That can lead to the water stone sticking and becoming hard to move. The Dia-Flat 95 Plus solves this by adding grooves to the plate. The grooves sluice the waste slurry away, reducing the suction between the flattening plate and water stone, for a more efficient flattening experience.

Large 160 Mesh Lapping Plate

It is a large lapping plate measuring 10" long and 4" wide. The Dia-Flat 95 Plus uses 95 micron (160 mesh) monocrystalline diamond abrasives. If you use water stones, you know that the biggest drawback is the fact that they will wear unevenly and require flattening. It is important to keep water stones flat for best performance, especially when you're sharpening woodworking tools. The 95 micron 160 mesh Dia-Flat 95 Plus is aggressive enough to flatten water stones quickly, but leaves a smoother surface than it's coarser cousin, the Dia-Flat Plus.

Certified Flat

To properly flatten your water stones, your lapping plate must be very flat. All of the DMT Dia-Flat 95 Plus stones are carefully machined to be flat within .0005 inches. DMT takes this one step further and tests EVERY flattening stone to make sure it meets their strict specifications. If it doesn't pass the test, it does not go out. You will receive a Certificate of Flatness stating that your lapping plate has met these rigorous standards. The head of production at DMT handles this process and personally signs off on each unit.

Hardcoat Technology

The Dia-Flat Lapping Plate uses a new DMT proprietary process they call their Hardcoat Technology. DMT has been known for many years for producing long wearing diamond coated products but this is a significant step up in durability even compared with the other stones they manufacture. This is critical to the long term effectiveness of their flattening stone because the flattening process puts a tremendous amount of wear on stones compared with sharpening.

Made in the USA by DMT.

Received my Sharpening System today,(Norton IM83) and I've got to tell you that I am excited about using this product. I've been in the meat cutting business for 45 years, and as you can imagine, I've used allot of different types and styles of sharpening equipment. I have had 3 Norton Multi-Oil Stone units in my lifetime, and then I see this IM83 and I think that this is what I need to carry with me when and wherever I go. I just LOVE this little box full of expertise equipment to keep me sharp and at a razors edge. Thank you for the service, it was fast and easy, and I received it within 3 days of ordering. I know knives and how they work, and I can't wait to start putting that edge on my "other" knives I own.
