Wouldn't it be difficult to keep from contaminating a strop if you have a diamond plate on the other side? Even if it is very fine.

Not if you have the new strop covers that are coming out. :)

Clay,
Are you also going to stock the real diamond PSA films? I have used a bunch of the non-diamond 3M films in the past. They work fine, but overall I am not impressed with them. This is mainly because they don't last very long. The diamond films, purportedly, last much longer.

I found some good diamond PSA films that I can get directly from 3M. I've been pleased with the samples.

we'll be carrying the DMT 3 micron stones soon

Really? As Wicked Edge stones on paddles? With the same thickness as the other stock stones? That’d be awesome! I’ll order them the same day they are put on sale...

We should have them in a couple of weeks. I have a couple combos in mind:
  1. DMT 3 Micron / Micro-Fine Fine

  2. DMT 3 Micron / Glass Blank with (also soon to be available) diamond PSA films. This combo is tremendous for ceramic blades.

I'd love to hear suggestions for other configurations.

I'm sorry for being so slow on the uptake, but is option #1 the 1200/1600 diamonds that were talked about a couple weeks ago? If so do we order now?
The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result?

Does that mean that you are at least seriously considering having some for resale?

Yes I'd like to know as well if first option would be similar or equivalent to 1200/1600 diamond plates?

Yes, I'd like to offer them. I think they have their place for sure in the scheme of things and provide a good way to keep bevels very flat down to a very fine grit.

The 3 micron diamond plate would be similar in grit to the 1600 ceramics but works in a very different way. The Micro-Fine fine stone is much finer, especially if lapped. The combo should be a great finishing and maintaining step.

Ah ok, so the Micro-Fine fine that you refer to is that the same ceramic stone as the one on the MicroFine ceramic paddle that you already offer?
