 Post subject: Leveling trouble with Shapton 4k and Diamond Plate

I am new to sharpening and recently purchased a Shapton 1k and 4k stone. I also bought the 140k diamond stone flattening plate that sells on the site for about $30. I flattened my 4k with the plate and noticed a lot of hairline scratches in the plate. Should this happen or am I doing something wrong? Thanks!

That will happen until the plate is broke in. If you have an old junk knife, thin it a little on the plate and that will knock down any high sitting diamonds. Or just keep using the plate to flatten and it will eventually take care of itself.

Those will go away quickly like Jeff says. Nothing to worry about.
