DMT diamond stones are precisely manufactured, highly wear resistant and will always stay flat.
Use water to lubricate to wash away the debris and always clean and dry surfaces after use.
This stone is one of our favorites, bringing the sharpening of traditional greenwoodworking hand tools into the 21st century.
In the last few years we have been using this larger stone for our own axes, drawknives and knives. It’s quick and convenient having two grits on one stone. The large cutting surface is great for larger edge tools and flattening the backs of chisels and drawknives.
For pointed tools such as some carving knives, this stone has a special continuous diamond zone.
DMT DuoSharp BENCH-STONE with BASE is a very professional stone for the sharpening of most greenwoodworking tools.
