DMT Diamond Sharpeners: Quality and Value

Why sharpen with DMT diamonds?

The diamond is recognized as the hardest, most durable substance in the world. This uncompromising crystal gives DMT Diamond Sharpeners their durable construction, outlasting conventional sharpeners and offering unsurpassed value. In addition to the value that DMT Diamond's longevity can offer, DMT Diamond sharpeners can simply outperform conventional sharpeners by the following advantages:

  • FAST - The ultra-hard DMT Diamond surface is the most efficient sharpening surface, shedding precious time from your sharpening duties.
  • EASY - The hardness of the DMT Diamond surface produces a sharp edge with light pressure and few strokes.
  • CLEAN - The DMT Diamond surface requires only water for lubrication, avoiding messes caused by oils.
  • VERSATILE - The DMT Diamond surface sharpens all materials—carbide, steel, etc.
  • CONSISTENT - The DMT Diamond surface starts flat and stays flat.

monocrystalline diamond structure versus polycrystalline diamond structure

What separates DMT Diamond from other diamond surfaces?

The monocrystalline diamond used in DMT Diamond Sharpeners, a high-quality micronized super abrasive, leads to a remarkable sharpening speed. Not only does the monocrystalline structure offer greater sharpening speed, but the uniformity of each diamond crystal prevents the diamond surface from breaking apart. DMT's competitors use a fragmented polycrystalline diamond structure that leads to imprecise sharpening and a shorter product life. Just check out the graphics below to see how the monocrystalline structure can enhance the longevity of a diamond-coated surface:

How else do DMT diamonds fare against the competition?

The DMT Diamond surfaces also distinguish themselves in the amount of diamond that is embedded within. In the following microscopic views, you can see the amount of diamonds that demonstrates DMT's commitment to high-quality construction:

The higher abrasive concentration in the DMT stone above makes for faster sharpening and longer life. The sparsely-distributed diamonds on the right-hand side, on the other hand, will wear down very quickly and make for a very tedious sharpening experience.

What about the distribution of the diamonds?

An even distribution of the diamond abrasives is critical to the performance and maintenance of the sharpening surface. An uneven distribution of the diamonds can increase overall sharpening time and produce an uneven wear on the sharpening surface. DMT Diamond Sharpeners have the best dispersion of diamond abrasives, providing the user a flat, level sharpening surface throughout several years of use. Below, the pictures demonstrate DMT's even diamond distribution relative to its competitor:
