ease of use, great edge, simple instructions
I was used to using ceramic and steel sharpening kits. I'm impressed with the ease of use with the diamond sharpening system. I used it both wet and dry and it performed great both ways. With just about a dozen strokes I was able to sharpen knives that normally take 5 to 10 minutes apiece. It's also so easy to clean after use. Just rinse it under running water and wipe dry. Great Job!
Just a few light strokes across the sharpener and I restored several knives that I thought would not hold a edge any longer. Well worth the price. This sharpener pays for itself.
I had several tools that needed sharpening and was able to quickly sharpen the tools to like new condition. This is an essential tool, for my toolbox. I wish I had purchased one years ago as I have been able to restore a lot of tools to new condition.
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?
It is very simple to use and does a great job of sharpening knives and chisels. I used it on Lathe turning skew and it was easy to do that and it produced a very sharp edge.
This is by far one of the most useful tools to have in any shop. The ease of use is such that even a complete novice can sharpen knives like a pro.
I received this during ice fishing season and used it exclusively to sharpen my fillet knife while cleaning fish. It put an excellent edge on the knife with just a couple of strokes. It has lived in the kitchen ever since and I will probably have to steal it once hunting season starts!
