I am going to buy the 4pc Glass stoen Set 500x, 1k, 4k, 8k.

I am also going to get the universal stone holder as well

1) After seeing you are offering various packages with universal stone holder, please advise if the following products are necessary to complement the 4pc Glass stone?

· 140 Grit Diamond Plate

· Leather Strop 8"

· Balsa Strop 8"

2) Any idean when Shapton Glass Diamond Lapping Plate is available again?

Hi Kim,

You need something to flatten the stones with. Maybe not right away but soon. The 140 grit plate will work fine. The DMTXXC is a better, the Atoma is popular and the Shapton Glass Lapping plate also will work and lasts forever. Pick one or at least buy some rough sandpaper at your hardware store and you can flatten with that.

Stops are not needed. You can do some edge trailing strokes on your 8K stone to finish your edge instead of strops if you like.

We just got more of them. I put them back in stock this morning.

140 Grit Diamond Plate is all you need for flattening. Anything more is overkill and just for shits and giggles.
Same with the strops, overkill but fun to play with. Get on just to satisfy your curiosity!
