I flatten mine on my diamond stone. Works well except on very long stones
where it is hard to get a perfectly flat surface across the whole length
because the stone being flattened overlaps the diamond stone. I get them
close enough for both chisels and planes. If I was really worried about
flattening the larger (10 inches long or so) stones I would get a bigger
diamond stone, mine is about 3x8.
