On a limited, special offer basis, DMT will produce a 6 micron / 4000 mesh D8ME 8-inch Dia-Sharp® Bench Stone. Our medium extra-fine can be used to attain a polished edge on your tools and knives. If you've been looking for something between our 9 and 3 micron stones, this is for you.
This stone is roughly equivalent to a 3000 grit stone; it's very fine and a great choice for finishing the average high quality kitchen knife.
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!
The DMT D8ME Dia-Sharp precision engineered diamond surface will stay flat throughout all your sharpening requirements without hollowing, chipping or cracking.
Sharpening with diamonds is fast and easy. No messy oils needed—sharpen dry or with water. Durable construction will provide years of consistent performance and reliable service. For proper tool maintenance, woodworkers, chefs and other professionals rely on the superior quality and versatility of DMT® products.
Note that DMT does NOT recommend these series of stones for lapping/flattening waterstone. Get one of the big DiaFlat lapping plates (extra-coarse or coarse) for that job, they will hold up MUCH better!
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 diamonds on the surface... the diamonds on this one are so fine they're not visible.
