The Wicked Edge Diamond Stones Pack 3000 and Blank Glass Platens are two sharpening stones for the Wicked Edge Sharpening systems. The sharpening stones are comprised of a plastic base with diamond-coated sharpening stones on top. The sharpening stones have two grain sizes: the blue side has grain size 3000 and the white side is a sheet of glass on which you can stick different Lapping films to polish your knife.
The grain sizes of the American Wicked Edge, however, are different from Japanese grain sizes. These sharpening stones have a grain size of 3000. This is similar to a Japanese 8000 grain size. The glass sheet is meant as a base for the lapping films. Wicked Edge recommends using the Wicked Edge 3 mircon lapping film.
These stones are very fine and therefore only meant to keep knives sharp or polish sharp knives. Are your knives blunt? If so it is a good idea to first sharpen with slightly coarser sharpening stones. For instance the: Wicked Edge Diamond stones pack 800/1000 or the Wicked Edge Diamond stones pack 400/600.
These sharpening stones can be used with all Wicked Edge Sharpening systems.
