NEXT GENERATION DIAFOLD® SHARPENERS DEBUT AT 40TH ANNUAL IWA & OUTDOOR CLASSICS

See New Eco-friendly Packaging & Redesigned Handles in American Pavilion, Hall 5, Stand 107

Marlborough, MA—The best-selling product line of the world’s finest diamond sharpeners have received a makeover. The Diafold’s new eco-friendly packaging and redesigned handles improve both sustainability and convenience without sacrificing performance or price. The next generation Diafold products will be introduced to the international trade community at the IWA & Outdoor Classics 2013 exhibition.

With worldwide distribution and years of experience in international sales, DMT Diamond Machining Technology received a 2012 Global Trade Award from the Associated Industries of Massachusetts International Business Council (AIM-IBC). The award recognizes DMT’s impressive global commerce, stellar worldwide reputation and export sales growth potential.

DMT Diamond Machining Technology pioneered the folding diamond sharpener with its original Diafold model in 1986. It quickly became the company’s most popular product. Over the years, DMT has expanded the line and grit selections, but this marks the first product and packaging redesign. Products in the revamped Diafold line are now available for purchase.

"We’re eager to introduce the next generation of the Diafold product line at IWA & Outdoor Classics 2013. The hunting, outdoor and tactical markets have long recognized Diafold’s excellent field performance and utility, making it one of our bestsellers. This exhibition is the perfect venue for spreading the word about the new Diafold throughout these international trade communities," says DMT President Mark Brandon.

The new Diafold packaging is smaller, lighter and uses 93 percent less plastic. Of additional benefit to distributors and retailers, the packaging is more tamper-resistant and does not change UPC or Bar Codes. For consumers, it is easier to open after purchase and clearly defines DMT’s color-coded grit identification system.

And speaking of clear ... each model in the Diafold line features new see-through handles manufactured from tough engineered resin. These handles maintain the butterfly folding design that protects the Diafold when not in use, but now allow users to immediately identify the tool type and select the right tool for the task at hand. Being able to display the Diafold in its folded position allowed for the development of the new packaging.

Today’s Diafold line includes six tool types:

  • Single sided
  • Single sided with fishhook groove
  • Double sided
  • Flat file
  • Serrated
  • Chain saw

Like all DMT products, the Diafold sharpeners are proudly Made in the USA and feature the DMT Difference: superior diamond coverage and uniformity combined with unrivaled flatness. DMT sharpeners feature the most diamond per square inch in the industry and a proprietary process that ensures near-perfect consistency in grit size, and they are engineered to be the flattest sharpeners on the market. The iconic polka-dot surface pattern self-cleans while sharpening to ensure continuous edge contact. This surface, innovated by DMT, is often imitated in appearance, but never equaled in quality or function. Simply put, DMT’s premium sharpeners are best-in-class products with undeniable long-lasting value.

Hunters, outdoor enthusiasts, and military and law enforcement personnel have long relied on DMT to ensure peak performance from their knives, multi-tools, fishhooks, broadheads and other gear.
