Overview

This Flattening Stone will keep your waterstones straight and flat for razor-sharp edges. It eliminates the "dish" that develops in waterstones over time and exposes a fresh cutting face for faster, more effective sharpening. This stone features coarse-grit silicon carbide that cuts quickly, and deep diagonal grooves that allow waste material to easily escape. For waterstones only. Measures 9" x 3" x 3/4".

  • Comes in a padded plastic case.
  • For best results, bring the waterstone to the Flattening Stone.
  • To ensure the entire surface of the waterstone is flat, use a pencil to draw a grid on its surface before flattening.

Guest from Sherrills Ford, NC Posted December 23, 2010
Was not flat out out of the box. Flattened quickly with diamond plate and did good job flattening water stones. Generally flatten water stones using two 1000 grits against each other and then using them on the 8000. Works well when the 1000s are flat. My only reason for keeping it was to lessen the wear on my diamond plate though that probably should not be a concern. It does flatten the water stones quickly.

Not a big fan of the flattening stone. The stone wears quickly, and I need to use a diamond stone to flatten the flattening stone. Similarly, I find that during long sharpening sessions, the flattening stone clogs easily. I would just use a diamond stone to flatten waterstones.

This flattening stone abrades in use,...

Thomas H from Ventura, CA Posted July 15, 2008
This flattening stone abrades in use, and very quickly becomes concave. When that happens, it creates a convex surface on any stones that are used with it. I find that I need to flatten the "flattening stone" so often that it is just about useless. Better to use abrasive paper on glass or other smooth, flat surface for flattening waterstones.
