About Atoma Diamond Sharpener Plate #140
The Atoma 140 is the go-to diamond plate for me when it comes to repairing chipped knives, or flattening whetstones. The biggest benefit to using diamond plates over whetstones in this grit range is longevity, and flatness - you don’t have to worry about either. I have been using the same Atoma 140 for all of my repairs since 2017. I also use the Atoma 140 to flatten any whetstones that need flattening, from the coarsest to the finest. It is my pick for best all-around flattening plate / fixing diamond plate. - Ryky
About Atoma Diamond Sharpener Plate #400
The Atoma 400 has been used in my sharpening kit to replace whetstones from 320-500 grit range. This grit range can be considered the upper end of “fixing” stones, or the lower end of “sharpening” stones. The Atoma 400 is coarse enough to flatten whetstones, but also fine enough to replace traditional whetstones up to 500 grit. - Ryky
About Atoma Diamond Sharpener Plate #600
The Atoma 600 is a great option for those who want a replacement for whetstones from the 500-800 grit range, but will last much longer than traditional whetstones. Whetstones in this grit range are considered coarse sharpening stones, and will bring dull knives back to life, but are generally a bit softer and faster wearing than most 1000 grit stones, so the Atoma 600 is a perfect diamond plate to get, that will give you the benefits of a coarse sharpening whetstone, but will last much longer, and will never need flattening. - Ryky
About Atoma Diamond Sharpener Plate #1200
The Atoma 1200 is a great substitution for those who want the longest lasting 1000 grit equivalent sharpening plate. The edge you get on the Atoma 1200 is comparable to a traditional 1000 grit whetstone, but the diamond plate never needs flattening or correcting. If I showed you a knife sharpening with the Atoma 1200, and a knife sharpening on a 1000 grit whetstone, you will not be able to tell the difference between them, and their sharpness would be the same. While it can be used for light lapping work on whetstones, to better maintain an even or flat surface, it is not the optimal use for this diamond plate. - Ryky
About Naniwa Sink Bridge
The Naniwa Sink Bridge is a great way to hold your whetstones directly over your kitchen sink, providing easy access to water. Having your whetstones over sink also makes things neater and cleanup easier. No more water running all over your counter top or workbench. Made in Japan

About Naniwa Whetstone Holder
After years of buying and testing dozens of whetstone holders on the market, this is one Ryky’s favorite. It’s one of the only holders that uses truly stainless hardware, and rails. It also has one of the widest footprint of all whetstone holders, which makes it one of the most stable to use.
It will hold all but the largest whestones available. Whetstones that are larger than what this holder can handle, generally will come with their own bases, or are specialty stones that require a much different holder solution.

There isn't much to say about this kit, its hands down the best all in one kit on the market. Ryky has done all the work for us in terms of research and acquisition. This kit will give you everything you need to repair and sharpen any blade you have. The absolute only critique i can give is the lack of instructions in English. All the stuff comes with Japanese instructions.
I also bought a nice strop from the clearance section and diamond compound from accessories along with some oil for knives and some polishing cloths.
I compared Rykys prices with Amazon and found his prices to be better by 10 to 20 percent on the items in this kit. Shipping was fast and customer service was responsive.
Really enjoy working with the diamond sharpening kit, great results. To me , they are easier to use than the water stones.
