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!
When I first received it I got out my pocket knife to sharpen, only a few swipes and it was back to its original sharpness. I also sharpened every knife in the house, and my wife couldn't believe it, and my chisels never been sharper.
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.
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.
I would recommend this to anyone who use knifes on a regular basis. I do a lot of hunting and having a sharp knife is key. I like that the sharpening stone only uses water to lubricate it. The instruction were very simple and to the point. It took me seconds compared to other sharpeners I have.
The DMT Diamond Sharpening System is a excellent product,sharpens knives and woodworking tools with ease.
It is quick and easy to use and produces a very sharp, clean edge. Requires much less work than standard whetstone. Tested it on knives, chisels and gravers and it produced excellent results.
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.
