The benefits of the diamond stone are many. The diamond is the hardest object known so it can sharpen ceramic or carbide tools where other stones cannot. Diamond stones cut very fast, saving you valuable time. The DMT® Diamond Whetstones are dead flat and remain flat so they don't need the maintenance of flattening like other stones. Measures 6" long by 2" wide.
The DMT® interrupted diamond surface is designed for a reason: It works. The diamonds are embedded in a nickel surface that rests upon a steel backing. The unique pattern in the diamond surface traps the particles while you're sharpening your tool or knife. This speeds up sharpening by getting the abraded metal out of the way so you can continue to use the stone instead of cleaning up the waste.
Diamond Whetstones come in a plastic box that doubles as a stone holder. The stone holder has rubber feet to ensure you don't have to chase your stone around while sharpening.
Available in Extra Coarse, Coarse, Fine, and Extra Fine grits. Made in the USA
The DMT® 6" Diamond Whetstone can be used to sharpen any tool or knife. Since the stone is single sided and comes with its own base, it is an economical diamond stone alternative when only 1 grit is needed.
We recommend the 6" DMT® Diamond Whetstone for woodworking tools, kitchen cutlery, and outdoor knives.
