In Detail

These 200 x 65mm double sided premium quality diamond stones give two options, just by flipping them over. We tested these extensively, medium 400G (36 micron) on one side and fine 1,000G (15 micron) on the other. Nickel plating permanently fixes the diamond particles onto the 8mm thick steel base. A chequered pattern carries away metal particles so maintaining the stone's cutting efficiency. On first use the diamond surface may seem aggressive, this is the same with all diamond sharpening stones. This is called the break-in period and will have no impact to long term performance. After a few sharpenings the stone will smooth. The resulting surface is more than capable of sharpening modern hard steels, ceramic knives as well as traditional tool steels. A protective non-slip rubber surround keeps the stone in place when in use. You can use it dry but it works far better with a splash of water.

Diamond wet stone

I bought one of these wet stones 1 year ago and it is still as it should be. Sharpens my chisels to a very high standard. Probably the best wet stone I,ve ever used.

Works perfectly / very pleased.

I was very surprised to see the poor reviews for these stones as mine works perfectly , I have used mine every day for the past 3 months and have seen no loss in performance.

Diamond stone

Bought this stone, honed one set of chisles and all the diamond has gone, defiantly not fit for purpose

False economy

Bought this thinking it was a bargain compared to the more established brands of diamond stones. Other reviews are correct in that they are flat, however the adhesive used to fasten the diamonds to the steel is substandard as now i have a double-sided sheet of steel. Makes and excellent paper-weight.

Longevity is Questionable

I used one of these to trial it and found that the zinc plating peeled back after a few hours. This is due to fracture at the intersecting corners especially near to the points of the diamonds. A well made diamond plate should last an individual woodworker several years and of course this depends on the amount of use.
