Diamond honing plates. (approx. 3 x 6 3/4 inches) so there is plenty of surface area to roll your Stay Sharp guide on.
You are getting 4 plates at a lower price than buying the 3 pack.
Wet/Dry Sandpaper is great but doesn't last very long. Diamond plates offer longer life.
DO NOT use water or oil on Diamond plates. Blow off the metal debris after sharpening your heads or use a dry tooth brush to sweep the plate clean (your room mate or spouse will never know)
Water will cause rust. Some of the metal removed from your blades will be trapped in the diamond plate and water will cause that metal to rust.
Oil will clog and gum up the rollers of your guide. Always use diamond plates dry. Store the plates in a dry location.
