Maintaining a flat stone is a fundamental factor in knife sharpening because a concave surface will make sharpening counterproductive. Use this stone fixer to keep your sharpening stone flat.
This stone fixer is suitable for flattening stones as coarse as 100 grit and up to 2000 grit. This stone fixer often comes with rough edges so it's recommended to either first flatten a coarse stone, use coarse sandpaper or metal file on the edges or rub it on the sidewalk. These rough edges can gouge softer stones, but once it has been broken in there is no trouble. The scratch pattern it leaves can have some variance with larger particles. This is the main reason for sticking below 2000 grit with this stone. It will effectively flatten finer stones, but the surface of those stones will need to be conditioned afterwards in order to get the proper results from them.
For finer grit stones we recommend Atoma 400 or any of the other Nano Hone that we carry.
