Innovative, precision flat two grit diamond sharpener features both interrupted and continuous diamond sharpening
8" DuoSharp®plus™ Bench Stone with base provides excellent counter and bench sharpening. The stone features two sides of 6" x 2 5/8" interrupted diamond surface sharpening. Perfect for knives, scissors, tools PLUS the benefits of a continuous zone for small and pointed tools. This model comes with the Bench Stone Base Accessory!
A note from Paul: you're probably wondering why this one is cheaper than the regular Duo-Sharp, which does not come with the base, and which has only the polka-dot pattern surface. DMT explained to me that it's more expensive to make the interrupted (polka-dot) surface. Also, while it can be handy to have that little continuous surface (for smaller knives and tips), remember that this also makes it a little more cumbersome to use the full surface of the stone in smooth sharpening sweeps since you'll move from the interrupted to the continuous surface. But still, this is a great value in a very versatile and lightweight stone (AND it includes the base which sells for $24.95 on its own!)
- Fine diamond stone (25 micron / 600 mesh) for a razor sharp edge.
