Extra-extra-fine diamond (3 micron / 8000 mesh) after sharpening an edge with coarser diamond grits, achieve the ultimate sharp edge with DMT’s Extra-Extra Fine D8EE Dia-Sharp® bench stone.
This is roughly equivalent to a 5000 to 8000 grit Japanese waterstone, so it's VERY fine and perfect for putting a final polish when you want a really fine edge (though it won't really do a mirror finish should you be looking for that... not something normally necessary or even desirable for most kitchen knives!)
As the finest grit bonded diamond abrasive bench stone available today, the D8EE offers a simple and easy solution to assuring the finest performance from all tools and knives in all applications. No need to fuss with fragile, messy and high maintenance Arkansas or Waterstones to attain a polished edge for your finest work. The DMT® D8EE Dia-Sharp® precision engineered diamond surface will stay flat throughout all your sharpening requirements without hollowing, chipping or cracking.
Guaranteed not to hollow or groove, DMT®’s precisely engineered Dia-Sharp® Bench Stone with continuous diamond surface assures consistent, even sharpening every time.
Diamond sharpening "stones" like this are an affordable, easy and fast way to sharpen your knives. And of course they never need flattening, so no need to invest in a lapping plate!
Measures 8" x 3".
NOTE: Because they are so fine, the surface of these stones will appear scratched and there may be small indents/pits in the surface, but it's just a by-product of their manufacturing and does not affect performance. It's not as visible on the more coarse stones because of the big chunks of larger diamonds on the surface.
