This 8 inch DiaSharp Extra Course 220Grit Continuous Diamond is the ultimate diamond bench stone and is a highly useful tool for many tasks. The DMT® Store 8 Inch Dia-Sharp® Bench Stone are precision flat, diamond surfaced sharpener guaranteed to provide consistent, even sharpening every time. This is the ultimate choice for bench sharpening, with a large, wider diamond surface to sharpen a variety of edges. Only monocrystalline diamond is used on the surface of these bench hones making the cutting action ultra fast yet consistent over any other Diamond Benchstone. See DMT Chart for Specs.
Note: This is the Hardcore version of the Course D8C and can flatten a waterstone in seconds!!! So when dealing with a hard stone or you just want to get it done in half the time take out this baby and go to town! I recommend that you smooth out the stone when done using this low Grit model. 325 or 1200 will smooth it out nicely and then make sure to rub the entire surface with your slurry stone to make sure it is ready for a Straight Razor.
