I was looking at getting an atoma 140 for profiling. I have the shapton 500, is this too high of a next step and do I need something like the shapton 220 or maybe the atoma 400.

Also, is the atoma that much better then the CKTG diamond plate?

thanks

Hi Joe, not that I have an Atoma 140 (I use a 3M 120), but the general feeling is that the Atoma leaves pretty deep scratches and the usual recommendation is to follow the 140 with a stone of roughly the same grit rating eg a Nubatama 150 or similar.

For $8.95 (unmounted)... I'd be trying the CKTG plate :)

If you're placing a new edge bevel on a blade with an Atoma 140, or similar, the Shapton 500 is OK for the job. Just enough to reestablish the scratch pattern if you want to end up with a coarse finish. But if you are looking for a mirror finish you will have to spend a great deal of time on the 500. That's why the Nubatama 150 gets the nod as the following stone.

I have the diamond CKTG plate and it works really well. I just ordered the shapton 220 as the next step up. Hopefully this will be enough. I read good things about the shapton 220 as a reprofiling stone.

I use the Atoma 140 for reprofiling (taking out nicks) and setting new bevels; I follow with a Shapton Glass 220 to starting taking out those scratches, then jump up to 600 followed by 1K and on up for a mirror finish. By the time I finish w/10K it looks fine :)
