Key Features:

- Medium Grit (280) Green Side

The full edge-to-edge uninterrupted diamond surfaces on the benchstones make for quicker, more efficient sharpening, at a high value.

The green, Medium side (280 grit) will quickly recondition your blades, removing substantial amounts of material from your blade to re-define its edge.  The blue Fine side (600 grit) will produce and maintain a micro-serrated working edge, polishing away the marks from lower grit stones.  The 600 grit stone produces a working edge that is adequate for nearly any task, especially cardboard cutting.

A perfect addition to any craftsman’s workshop, the diamond abrasives on the benchstones are excellent for repairing and maintaining a large range of tools from dull and damaged kitchen knives, to well maintained woodworking chisels.

Instructions

Double Sided Diamond Benchstone Instructions

Step 1- Select the proper sided of the stone for your edge.

  • Medium- To maintain an undamaged, dull edge
  • Fine- To hone/polish a finished edge or for daily manitainance

Step 2- Set the  Benchstone base on a stable, flat surface with the stone you have selected facing up.

Note- Lubrication of any kind is not recommended while sharpening on any of the three stones. DO NOT USE HONING OIL ON THE DIAMOND STONE.

Step 3- Observe the bevel angle on the blade you intend to sharpen.  Then, bring the edge to the stone matching your sharpening angle to the bevel angle.

Step 4- Using light pressure, push the edge of the blade across the stone in one motion, much like trying to slice a thin layer off the top of the stone. Maintaining a consistent angle is essential for the best results.

Step 5- Repeat process 3-4 times on one side of the blade then switch to the other side and repeat.

Step 6- Repeat this process until edge is sharp then progress to finer stones and repeat.

Step 7- Clean your stones.

  • Clean the Diamond stone with a damp rag after each use.

Suggestions

1. Use a series of stones for the best results. For an undamaged edge start with the Medium Diamond Stone

2. Start with your selected stone. Use 3-4 strokes on one side of the blade. Repeat process on the other side of the blade. Repeat this whole process, switching between sides, about 3-4 times. 

3. Then use only 2 strokes per side.  Repeat this process 2-3 times. 

4. Then 1 stroke per side.  Repeat this process 1-2 times.

5. Move on to a finer stone.
