    I've never owned a diamond stone.

    Why do they have that metal grid over them? How can you sharpen with that grid?

    that grid is the "stone". It's basically expanded metal with the diamond dust impregnated. The block is just a backer for stiffness and some clearance elevation from the table top to mimic a stone.

    I have a very course diamond plate that I use to flatten my waterstones. It's nothing but a bumpy metal plate.
