Description

For the first time ever DMT® has created a 2X Coarse Diamond Stone. What separates this stone from other stones is its very large diamond particles. The diamond particles are twice as large as any other stone we've seen. These large diamond particles offer an extremely coarse continuous surface for jobs where you need to remove metal fast. It provides a safe alternative to powered grinding with no worries of heat build up that can damage tool temper. Furthermore, the extremely coarse stone allows you to quickly and easily change tool bevel angles and remove cutting edge nicks and chips.

This stone is in the Dia-Sharp® line of DMT® diamond stones and features a continuous diamond surface attached to heavy-duty nickel and steel backed surface. This diamond stone measures 8" long and 3" wide. The size is plenty large for sharpening most tools and knives. Includes four rubber feet to keep the stone in place during sharpening.

Use with water only - no oil needed. Made in the USA.

Uses

If you need maximum speed in metal removal or flattening, this is the best stone we have ever used. The extra extra coarse grit removes metal much faster than any other coarse grit. Whether you're flattening the back of a chisel or establishing a new bevel on a knife or tool, this stone makes quick work of those previously laborious tasks. In addition, it's ideal for flattening water stones, Arkansas stones, and synthetic stones.

Optional Stone Holder

  • Raises the stone off the work surface to make knife sharpening easier
  • No-slip rubber feet keep stone in place during sharpening
  • Adjusts to fit a wide variety of stones (6.5" to 8.5" wide) including the stone sold above

DMT Grit Chart

I recently placed my first order after finding you on the web while looking for grinding wheels. I am a customer for life. Here's why. My first order was a simple white grinding wheel for a "normal joe's shop". When I received the wrong wheel (150 grit instead of the ordered 100 grit) I called and without hesitation or the 3rd degree another wheel was sent off. No questioning of my integrity, intelligence or honor. Simply "I am sorry, we'll send the correct wheel off immediately..." The right thing was done by a neat guy. I was treated like an adult. Unbelievable in this day and age...proper...and priceless. Price, performance, responsiveness and customer service par excel-lance. 6-Stars! All my sharpening orders, albeit small shop orders, will now be with you. Promote you I will.
