    I have some Shapton ceramic stones for hand sharpening and those must be flattened after every use.  Is that the case with the WE Super Fine and Micro Fine Ceramics as well?  If so, how does one flatten them?

    There is no need to flatten either of the WE ceramic stones. They are extra hard and are formed either by sintering (Micro Fine) or vitrified bond (Super Fine) so they are not bound in a matrix that disintegrates as you use it like other types of ceramic stones.
