Super sharpMy experience with these diamond stone goes back over three years. I own three myself (extra course, fine and extra extra fine) and teach at a college where two sets of small Bench Whetstones have been in constant use for about seven years. The college ones are very worn but still sharpen well. My own are like new and I get excellent results from them. Although expensive to buy initially the investment is well worth it. They will give years of great results in the contentious world of sharpening!

extra extra fineI bought this stone because I was fed up with continually having to flatten my waterstones. It cuts quickly but after 3 months of bedding in it's apparent it leaves scratches and the finish is nowhere near as good as my 8000 grit waterstone. Also when flattening the back of a plane iron it's totally ineffective because the iron aquaplanes over most of the surface with very little cutting taking place. It cuts easily on the bevel however. In my opinion this product is grossly overpriced and does not do what it says on the tin. The large duosharp models are much better as they carry the slurry away and are superb for flattening waterstones. I would not recommend it.

Exta, extra FINEAn edge to shave with, and effortless. Cuts faster than I thought it would. Does not give quite he mirror shine I expected, still leaves slight scratches, but the DMT "instructions" say these will diminish with use as it beds in, which I believe, as this happened with other diamond stones I use. I use inexpensive 400/1000 Axminstere stones initially, then the DMT 8000 grit. Not cheap, but gives very good results.
