Thanks for the offer, I was actually just coming back to tell folks who read this that I ended up getting an atoma (got it imported from japan directly through a friend, was ~$100 for me so I couldn't pass it up)
Tell you what though, I can see EXACTLY why people were recommending it, super flat (I put the two plates back to back and then front to front and it really showed off just how warped the original plate was)
But outside of that it ground really fast, was super easy to clean, was a bit bigger and didn't leave any noticeable scratches on my stones (where the other one did when I was silly enough to use it)
So yeah, in the end just a bit of a puff piece about how worth it atoma plates are and thanks to those who offered their support/opinions.
