I bought a couple of Naniwa sharpening stones with base and tried them out but they slip around on my counter . Any suggestions for something to provide a rock solid base? Also, do these stones need to be flattened occassionally and if so is there a diamond plate you'd recommend? Thanks, Steve

Buy some stick-on little rubber feet from HomeDepot.

Yes you need to flatten your stones when needed.

Another option is some of that rubber mesh drawer liner you can find in places like you find at bed bath and beyond would work.

If you wanted to spend some money the naniwa sink bridge works great too.

STEVE <> Another option is a damp rag on the counter; cotton - not polyester, linen, rayon, etc. I have yet to find anything that works better.

I made my own sink bridge that you see in a lot of my sharpening videos on youtube as kenneths123, but if you are not inclined to make one yourself, that naniwa sink bridge looks like an excellent choice. I personally like the idea of using my stones over the sink rather than on a countertop. Most of the stones I use don't have bases and I use a stoneholder for them and lock the holder in place on the bridge. One of my pet peeves is watching someone do a stone video with the stone banging around.

A paper towel under a stone helps keep the stone in place and when you are done and ready to switch stones, toss the paper towel.
