The Nano Hone NL-4 lapping plate is designed to flatten waterstones from 110μm(micron) to 10μm(micron) (from 220 grit to 2,000 grit).
The NL-4 is a traditional plated design. However, unlike standard designs, the NL-4 has a raised diamond coated structures. It is the edges of these raised diamond structures that are doing the heavy work.
The NL-4 has an arrow-rake pattern for heavy material removal. the long straight edges cut very well across stones
• To flatten the surface of sharpening stones.
• To clean the surface of sharpening stones.
• To chamfer the edge of sharpening stones.
Nano Hone was founded by Harrelson Stanley, the founder of Shapton USA. With 40 years of experience flattening whetstones, they are redefining modern sharpening and lapping, and introducing innovations in diamond technology to existing tools and methods.
This sharpening stone fixer is suitable for all coarse grit stones and medium grit up to about 2000. This fixer can flatten stones that are higher grit than 2000, but it will put deep gouges in the surface which can be hard to get out and may affect sharpening. For finer grit stones we recommend Atoma 400 or any of the other Nano Hone that we carry.
