- Shapton Glass Diamond Lapping Plate
- High-quality diamond lapping plate with deep-blasted glass
- Restores medium stones and finishing stones to their original capabilities
- Glass-based lapping plate for high precision
The Shapton Glass Diamond Lapping Plate is a high-quality tool designed to maximize the capabilities of medium and fine sharpening stones. As blades are sharpened on whetstones, the stones themselves change shape over time, affecting the planes at the blade's edge. To maintain a flat sharpening surface, the Diamond Lapping Plate is used.
This lapping plate features a glass base, providing exceptional precision when resurfacing sharpening stones. It restores medium stones and finishing stones to their original capabilities, allowing for sharpening with the finesse of a master craftsman. The high degree of surface flatness ensures highly accurate lapping.
