Speed and consistency are your best friends to sharpen efficiently. Lap often and your stone will cut.

The mega NL-5!

Like a wide-screen smartphone requiring your full grasp, the NL-6 is nothing less than a handful. The surface is coated with diamond abrasive particles in a nickel bed. The NL-6's surface is a series of raised diamond coated structures. It is the edges of these raised diamond structures that are doing the heavy work.

Our new NL-6 has flat surfaces on both ends to avoid a sudden drop off during flattening which protects the stars from chipping.

The NL-6 lapping plate is designed to flatten all whetstones from 35μm to 0.5μm (400 grit to 30,000 grit range). With more surface area to cover larger faces, this new addition to the Nano Hone Lapping Plate series is the go to for hobbyists and professionals. 

This plate is intended for ceramic water stones. 

Dimension : 80 mm X 240 mm

Micron size : 60 Micron

Weight : 1.8 LB

Very substantial!

Given its low rung on the Nanohone flattening totem pole, I was concerned this would be a small ineffectual stone. Boy was I wrong. It’s long and strong, and gets the job done!

Fantastic product.
Does exactly what I want it to do and keeps my stones flat.

Cody Thweatt

use it everyday about 5 times a day. Holds up well and flattens ceramic stones quickly

It's a Beast!

This cuts and flattens stones with ease. I use it on Hap's stones 400 Grit + and my naniwa stones. It feels substantial in the hand due to it's size and weight. I like being able to place it on the stage or flatten from the top down by hand.

I'm sure this will last a very long time.

Hi Cole,
Thank you so much for shearing your experience with our BEAST! Since diamonds are dispersed evenly throughout the metal button matrix, this plate is tough and yes, will last a longest time. Enjoy!

Early Buyer - Still love it!

I have, I think, serial number 3, this thing is worth it's weight in gold, its a product made to get a job done. I use it every time I sharpen, and it still is in great shape after the years. This is a buy once, cry once kind of tool. Don't waste your time with other methods... if you know you will be in this craft a while, invest in this and forget about worrying on stone flattening.
