Just thought I'd give a quick review of a nice little piece of kit I picked up from Ken S., that being a 2x3 piece of Atoma plate, 1200 grit. I currently use Nubatamas and Jnats exclusively when it comes to my sharpening needs, and the sharpening needs of my clients. I use this small plate to QUICKLY generate slurry/mud on everything from 1K all the way up to 15K. I have found it allows me to create a muddy stone out of something that is typically not muddy at all. Good example would be the Jnat Ozuku; prior to using the plate this stone would give up very little slurry, but with the small Atoma it generated a surprising amount for such a hard stone. My Jnat Hakka Tomae, one or two quick swirls creates enough mud to build a brick house. For the Nubatamas, in addition to slurry, it does a great job cleaning and refreshing the surface. It also tends extend the amount of time between flattening sessions on my full size Atoma 140.

Do I like mud? Absolutely. Do I recommend this little 2x3 plate? You bet I do mister. -Josh

Location: USA... mostly.

It is also an inexpensive way to get an Atoma... albeit 1/4. I didn't wanna drop the whole $125 on a full size 600, for the limited amount of ceramic knife sharpening I do, as I have a full size 140 & 1200 for my stone flattening/knife repair & stone smoothing/slurry stone, respectively. I grabbed the 1/4 plate at reduced rate, and it obviously works just the same in a blade sharpening capacity as the full size. Good deal!

Embracing the silence amid a life and land full of static...
