I will offer one-time special price for these at $99.95. It's way below their MSRT, but I am eager to get them out, as I think they are great plates, particularly in this size, and they will be my stock item along other plates in 11x2.5" size.
I will discontinue offering other sizes.
To recap the benefits of sharpening on diamond plates
- Don't need flattening & surface can be used for felt strop
- Fast (fast cutting)
- Efficient (fewer passes needed)
- Will sharpen high wear-resistant steels, while Aluminum Oxide stones won't
The last point is important if you consider moving toward high wear resistant steels.
