Hey, I just got the atoma 140 and shapeton glass 500, 1k, 2k 4k, 8k edge pro plates.

When I get up to 8k I start seeing old scratches. I'm guessing from the atoma 140?

I tried to spend a lot of time with the shapeton 500 but I'm wondering if there is another stone I can use in between?

I read the nubatma 150 was good but its out of stock.

What about the shapeton glass 220 or 320?

Is there another stone you would recommend to go in between the atoma 140 and the shapeton glass 500?

Thanks
Mike

Hi Mike,

Use a magnifier and check after each stone (or diamond plate) to make sure the deeper scratches of the previous stone are removed before you move up in grit. It's common to rush through the progression of your stones too quickly and this will cause you to leave behind some scratches. The 320 would be a good choice for you in your current line up to help make it easier for you to get out the 140 atoma scratches.

Mike,

I would hold out until the Bamboo 150 becomes available. Not only does it excel as a follow up to the Atoma, it is a great cutter in its own right.

Cheers,

Rick

Like Mark has mentioned you can't move to the next stone in grit progression until all the scratches have been removed from the previous stone. Your scratches you see not be all entirely made by your first stone. Have you tried stropping? even when I am going for a mirror polish on my knife blades, I will still see scratches until I buff.

Some 150 Nubatama Bamboos are on their way to Mark. It really is a perfect solution to this problem. I recommend this stone a lot for the EP and full sized - whether you have a Shapton pro or Glassstone set, all Nubatamas or some other mix of stones. It 'converts' those diamond scratches very effectively into 'stone scratches' quickly.
