Pocket Model Stones Adopt Eco-friendly Packaging, Redesigned Handles

06/28/2013

 Marlborough, MA—Following in the footsteps of their big brothers in the Diafold® line, DMT’s Mini-Sharp® Diamond Sharpeners have an innovative, fresh look that improves practicality and boosts the “green” factor. Products in the revamped Mini-Sharp line are now available for purchase.

“We’re committed to a longstanding tradition of innovation combined with environmentally-friendly practices,” says DMT President Mark Brandon. “With the new Mini-Sharp line, we have improved function, convenience and sustainability without raising the price point.”

The new Mini-Sharp packaging is lighter and uses 86 percent less plastic. It is made of durable and recyclable cardboard—only the small see-through blister is still plastic—which reduces the retail footprint. Of additional benefit to distributors and retailers, the packaging is more tamper-resistant and does not change product UPC or bar codes. For consumers, the packaging plainly offers a clear view of DMT’s color-coded grit identification system and is easier to open after purchase. The embedded QR code provides instant access to a how-to video that clearly demonstrates how to use the sharpeners.

And speaking of clear ... each model in the Mini-Sharp line features new see-through handles manufactured from tough engineered resin. While maintaining the compact folding design that protects the sharpener when not in use, the clear handles now make the tool type identifiable at all times. This transparent design not only makes it easier to select the right grit for the task at hand, but also enables the Mini-Sharp to be displayed in its folded position, which enabled the development of improved packaging.

Today’s Mini-Sharp line is available in the following grits:

  • Extra Coarse
  • Coarse
  • Fine
  • Extra Fine
  • Coarse with fishhook groove*

* models with fishhook groove are also known as Mini-Sharp Angler


Lightweight and ultra-portable with a handy key chain swivel ring, all models in the “Anywhere–Anytime” Mini-Sharp line provide the same great performance that DIYers, outdoor enthusiasts and gardeners have long relied on to ensure peak performance from their knives, tools and even fishhooks.

Like all DMT products, the Mini-Sharp 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.
