I was impressed at how fine an edge it put on my filet knife in such an easy way.
Over the course of many years I have obtained and used a variety of knife sharpeners. The DMT 6" diamond whetstone sharpener is far superior to any other I have used. There is no substitute for sharp knives and there is no substitute for a great sharpener. Just a few quick strokes maintains a great edge. What more can you ask?
I used it on everything from my knife collection to my bench chisels, turning tools and planes. It was easy to use and gave a superior edge without the mess that my oilstones make.
The DMT Diamond Sharpening System is a excellent product,sharpens knives and woodworking tools with ease.
The Kitchen knives were the first test. I consider myself a novice at this. I've used knife sharpeners before with not so good results. This time they got sharpened and my wife was showing me how nice they worked.
Made in the USA means a lot! It sharpens quickly, whether you need to remove a lot or just a "tune up" on the blade edges. Because it's manufactured flat, it is excellent for planer blades and chisels. The ability to sharpen dry or with only water creates less of a mess than other types of sharpening stones. The no-hassle guarantee is a definite plus, though I would be surprised if you ever needed it.
Ability to use without oil was great. Clean up is easy and fast. Puts a good edge on knives, even for a novice sharpener.
This diamond wetstone is very handy for quick touch-ups to keep your tools sharp,including carbide tools.It also will put a new profile on tools with a litle time and very little effort.
