Shapton Diamond Glass Lapping Plate - DGLP

3 items left

The Shapton DGLP Diamond Glass Lapping Plate is famous around the world, and for good reason. It's not cheap, but it strives for perfection and performance unlike any other diamond lapping plate on the market. The performance is amazing and it is known to be as perfectly flat as is possible. 

Read the Shapton FAQ/instructions.

This DGLP is capable of lapping stones up to 30 microns (500 grit or above). It should not be used on rougher stones, as that would dramatically reduce its usable life.

Here's what Shapton says:

Most users find the capabilities of Shapton's DGLP astonishing. The sharpest cut is born when two steel planes cross at an acute angle. Yet every time a blade is sharpened on a sharpening stone, the stone itself changes shape, so over time, the planes at the blade's edge also change. That is why it is so important to keep the sharpening stone itself flat. Apply the DGLP, and you will enjoy sharpening as never before. The DGLP uses glass for its base, and this is what produces such high precision on the resulting sharpening stone plane.

Shapton Lapping plate

Works very well for flattening my water stones, the deep grooves carry the slurry away and it rinses clean easily. The best lapping stone Ive used.

High quality tool

I am an everyday straight razor shaver. To keep my razors sharp, I use the Shapton Glass line of products. Having a high quality lapping stone is almost more important than having the stones themselves. Having completely flat stones is extremely important to ensure the edge is evenly sharpened. This product is the best you can get. You definitely get what you pay for.

simply the best

I absolutely love the DGLP, the performance and results justify the price tag. Works fast and consistent. I can't say much about it life spam as its still new but time will tell. worth the investment. I can't say enough good thing about the incredible service and the fast shipping.

SHAPTON DIAMOND GLASS LAPPING PLATE

I have used it exclusively with the yellow and wine Shapton stones. Many people spend a huge amount of time preparing a blade only to do the original lapping and micro-bevel using final stones which are not absolutely flat. What a waste. This lapping plate is absolutely gorgeous to use with the Shapton fine stones, and the results it produces nothing short of stunning.

Paul's service was superb.
