DMT is proud to kickoff its 40th anniversary at the 2016 SHOT Show. In 1976, as the U.S. celebrated its Bicentennial, DMT started its own revolution and changed the face of sharpening forever. Over the next four decades, the company built its reputation as the worldwide leader by innovating and producing the highest quality knife and tool sharpeners available, all Made in the USA.

Even in the most challenging economic times, DMT refused to heed the siren call of overseas production. With quality being its most important differentiator, manufacturing here in America is critical. And American ingenuity is just as big a part of the DMT story. It holds more than 10 patents and has introduced more than 125 new products, including 10 in the past five years alone.

DMT will feature its most recent innovation, the DuoBase with MagnaBase Adapter, at the SHOT Show. The new bench stone accessory offers greater flexibility and convenience when sharpening. Following the popularity of the company’s MagnaBase concept in 2014, consumers called for a model that can be used with all DMT bench stones—especially Dia-Sharp products—and DMT answered.

“DMT’s great new MagnaBase Adapter showcases their practical and highly functional products and makes their diamond bench stones even more versatile and easy to use,” says Roy Huntington, American Handgunner publisher. “Now any of their stones can be quickly swapped out. It’s a breeze to change from one grit to another as I sharpen knives, shape metal or flatten parts I'm building for guns. I use mine almost daily.”

Hunters, outdoor enthusiasts, and military and law enforcement personnel have come to depend on DMT to ensure peak performance from their knives, multi-tools, fishhooks and more.

“As a professional gear reviewer, I get to test the majority of products on the market,” said Dan Kidder, Managing Editor for Sportsman’s News Magazine. “DMT does a great job of manufacturing the highest quality products. From better dispersion of their more consistent diamonds, to having the flattest sharpeners available, each stroke of your blade across a DMT sharpener delivers optimum performance.”
