For Kitchen or Shop
Nano-Hone Diamond Resin Plates provide high tech sharpening. Use them in your shop or bring them into the kitchen. Whether you are sharpening tools or honing fine culinary knives, the comprehensive Nano-Hone system of stones, holders, ponds and strops is equally easy to use on a work bench or over a kitchen sink. Nano-Hone stones are perfect for the craftsman or chef who is particular about their edges.
A Different Kind of Diamond Stone
These stones made of diamonds held in a 1.2mm thick layer of resin binder. Unlike most other diamond stones which are a single coating of diamonds plated onto a base, the Nano-Hone Diamond Resin Plates provide a feel more like a water stone. As the resin slowly wears, fresh diamonds are exposed making for a fast cutting, long lasting stone. Cut very hard blades like powdered steels with ease. These plates can be used dry or with water
The resin the diamonds are bound in is specifically designed to be hard enough for the plate to be slow wearing, but unlike many other diamond in resin stones, it is soft enough to be efficiently flattened. The Nano-Hone NL-4 Diamond Flattening Plate is the recommended lapping surface for the Diamond Resin Plates.
Unique Honeycomb Design
Made by Hap Stanley of Nano-Hone in his workshop, the stones have a great deal of thought and development behind them. Employing the same diamonds in the same resin as the Nano-Hone Strops, the unique honeycomb pattern makes for a fast cutting surface that ovoids clogging with swarf.
Choose From Three Grits
The Nano-Hone Diamond Resin Stones are available in three grits:
- 600 Grit/25 Micron for aggressive sharpening
- 1500 Grit /10 Micron for refining and maintenance
- 10000 Grit/1 Micron for final polishing
Part of the Nano-Hone System
The Nano-Hone Diamond Resin Stones are designed to work with the Nano-Hone Stone Stage. Each stone's Aluminum Base Plate has two holes which fit on to pins on the massive Stone Stage stone holder for a stable sharpening experience.
To get even more from the Nano-Hone sharpening experience, put your Nano-Hone Stone Stage in the Nano-Hone Sharpening Pond to keep the water contained.
The Nano-Hone Water Stones measure 210 mm x 75 mm (8" x 2 7/8") providing ample room for sharpening. The abrasive layer is 1.5mm thick for a long service life. The Aluminum Base Plate is 6mm (1/4") thick making for a sturdy stone.
