It works much faster than a traditional stone without the oily mess.
Eric H.
The only shortcoming I notice with this product is the ambiguity of the stone in determining which side is fine (600-grit) and which extra fine (1200-grit).
Candid Reviewer
I found that I can easily and quickly put an edge on any knife I own that is just ridiculously sharp.

I had a DMT fine/medium and worked with hard Arkansas to finish. I decided to try a DMT fine/extra fine, and got this with the holder for a nice price on Amazon.

This is a great setup. You can hold by the handle or set on a counter, and changing stones is quick and easy. What took me hours to do before DMT on aluminum oxide and hard Arkansas now goes very quickly, thanks to DMT.

If it slows down a bit just put it under running water for a couple of seconds to wash off particles and it's back. No need to hunt around for a source of good honing oil.

I also like the tip finishing area at one end of the stone, which my first DMT does not have.

I own a lot of expensive knives: Kitchen and hunting. Knives that were razor sharp when new and over time they were anything but. I have tried Arkansas stones, ceramic rods, and many other sharpening systems and tools. Nothing is a good as the DMT bench. One side is red and one is green. The red takes a not sharp (but not abused) blade and hones it first. Maybe 5 to 6 passes per side. Then you move to the green to take the sharpening to a new level with 3-5 passes per side. Almost like new. A dull knife takes maybe 3 minutes to sharpen. An "almost" sharp refresh, using only the green side, takes about a minute. I can do the whole kitchen rack of 15 knives (refresh only) in 30 minutes.

Success for me relied on two things: the correct angle and the correct pressure per pass. I used the recommended "lay two quarters on top of one another" in the manual to get the feel of the angle. Once I got the feel I don't use them anymore. Initially I was putting about the amount of force I used to use with sharpening stones. It was too much. Now I used just enough pressure to keep the knife on the surface (either red or green). And by that I mean almost no pressure. If you have a kitchen scale I find about 1-2 oz of pressure works best for me. Any more than that and I just hone off good steel. It seems I use less pressure each time and the diamond surface works perfectly. I expect to get even better and the knives even sharper.

This sharpening system is definitely worth the price. Highly recommended. Use it for two weeks and relegate your old systems to your favorite charitable donation site.

Note: I also use the DMT 12" Diamond Steel between sharpenings. (see my separate review). I use it while paring and carving AND to sharpen my serated bread knife.

I use this sharpener for my kitchen knives. Fine is actually rather coarse and it works super fast on a dull edge, and extra fine is fine enough that I can get away with no polishing. The sharpener needs a few drops of water and it cleans easily under water, the bench comes in quite handy. Highly recommended, much faster and less messy than your regular whetstone.

I purchased DMT WM8CX sharpening stone-Coarse/Extra-coarse grits, DMT WM8EF sharpening stone-Fine/Extra-fine grits, and their base.
So far I, with all grits, sharpened two Henckels fruit knives, three Global chef's knives, and two Japanese kitchen knives that a sword-maker forged. I could sharpen them very fast in comparison to my past sharpening work with whet stones. For instance, a Henckels knife of soft stainless steel within 80 strokes; I needed about 800 strokes on one side of the edge to sharpen Japanese knife of forged sword-steel. A number of strokes between them are needed to sharpen well the Global molybdenum/stainless steal.
A demo by the manufacturer said the diamond sharpening stones remove metal ten times faster than whet stones do. Although I have no way of measuring its claim. I felt so while I was removing metal from the knives. My tasks of sharpening kitchen knives for my wife became much easier.
The surfaces of the diamond stones are flat and should remain flat in use for a long time to come.
The base is effective to support the stones in the right height and at the right place. It is easy to mount each stone onto it and I thought it was a part of the stone by design.
Recently, many products, even those of Made-in-USA, do not meet to what the manufacturers advertise and claim. It is the first time in the last several years I see the products meet the manufacturer's advertisement and claims.
The diamond sharpening stones may be pricey in comparison to those of any whet stones. I would like to say though, "Complaint to poor quality is forever but complaint to the price is short-live as long as the product quality is good.

I found a box full of old, blunt, but high quality kitchen knives. In about 5 minutes, I had resharpened all these knives and saved more than the price of the stone for not having to buy a new set!

Hello,
I have used this combined bench stone very much the last month on chisels, knives and bench plane irons and it performed really well on all.
The stand is functional and it's easy to flip the stone from one side to the other.
8 inch is a generous size... as far as you don't use it for huge axes.
I already knew that the diamond surfaces feel like they perform better at the very beginning but it's just an impression. The harsh sound isn't there any more, it works silently now, but it definitely works!
I think the speed and the "ever lasting" flatness are the big advantages of diamond stones and the DMT appears to be one of the best ones of that kind.
It's nice, too, not to have to mess around with water or oil. I just put a small amount of water on it. That's enough. But you could easily work with the dry stone.

Fine and Extrafine is good for sharpening but you need a finer stone for honing and a course one for the initial setup of bench plane irons.

Bye, Herb.
