Diamond Bench Stone Instructions
Step 1 - Select the proper stone for your edge.
- Extra Course-Course- For a completely dull or damaged edge
- Medium- To maintain an already sharp edge
- Fine- Extra Fine- to hone/polish a finished edge
Step 2 - Set the stone on a stable, flat surface.
Note: Do not use lubrication of any kind on the Diamond Stone Surface.
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.
Step 7 - Make sure to clean your stones with a damp rag after each use. Store in a cool dry place.
1. Use a series of stones for the best results. Course -> Medium -> Fine -> Extra Fine.
2. Start with 3-4 strokes per side. Repeat this process 3-4 times.
3. Then 2 strokes per side. Repeat this process 2-3 times.
4. Then 1 stroke per side. Repeat this process 1-2 times.
5. Then move on to a finer stone.
