Diamonds are a woodworker's best friend! The first step to successful woodworking is sharp tools. This diamond whetstone is very effective and makes the sharpening process a minimal effort.
The sharpener is extremely easy to use, and works quite well. I used to have a professional hone my blades, but now I can do just as good a job.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Ability to use without oil was great. Clean up is easy and fast. Puts a good edge on knives, even for a novice sharpener.
