The SharpMaker is a great product, but one of the drawbacks is that it's slow going if the bevels of the knife are wider than the 30° or 40° angle that the SharpMaker is set for. And reducing the angle with the stones that come with the SharpMaker can take far too much time and effort to be worth while. That's why people opt for the diamond stones. But I found that the SharpMaker diamond rods were not coarse enough for my taste, and reducing the angle with the diamond stones still took far too much time and effort to be worth while, at least with some of the tougher steels, such as D2 and ZDP-189.

I think a better idea is to purchase the DMT D6CX Double Sided Dia-Sharp Coarse/Extra-Coarse Bench Stone:

DMT D6CX Double Sided Dia-Sharp Bench Stone - Coarse / Extra-Coarse.

You can lean the DMT stone against one of the SharpMaker ceramic rods so that the DMT stone is at a 30° or 40° angle and hold the DMT stone fast to the ceramic rod with one rubber band going around the top and another one going around the bottom of DMT stone/ceramic rod. The DMT stone will remove more metal faster than the SharpMaker diamond rods.

And if you want to freehand sharpen, the DMT stone is much better for that.

Having bought the SharpMaker diamond rods and then the DMT stone, I can say that the extra expense of the DMT is well worth it. Some people love the SharpMaker diamond rods. I'm not one of them.

These diamond rods make sharpening old dull knives so much faster and easier. I use these stones to give the knife a 40 degree edge, and then work my way through the other stones to fine tune the edge. My next purchase is going to be the ultra fine stones.

I'm not a big fan of diamond stones, and the triangular rods that Spyderco sells are made pretty much for sharpening on the flat sides. The diamond particles on the edges will come off fairly easy and that, as they say, is the rub. One can take a standard diamond stone (or your choice of flat stone) and simply lean it against one of the two Spyderco rods. Then you can use the same downward strokes with your knife and the angle will be correct. When you're done making, say, 10 strokes, you simply move the stone over to lean against the other Spyderco rod and do the same. The angles will be correct and it will be cheaper.

The Ultrafine rods are an altogether different proposition. They last forever and they put the equivalent strop on a knife. I recommend those. But not rods that wear fairly quickly.

In sharpening, the angle is everything. After using a Sharpmaker for awhile, many people will instinctively pick up the correct angles and go for just flat stones. Getting a mirror polish with the Sharpmaker is almost impossible.

PROS:
- Aggressive diamond cutting edges quickly re-profiles blades
- Effective with even the hardest tool steels and powdered steels

CONS:
- Slightly larger than stock rods, which stretches out the plastic baseplate and introduces excessive play when using the standard sharpening rods
- Can damage knives if used improperly

I had several knives (kitchen, hunting and tactical) that I had not properly maintained and which I was having trouble honing with my standard Spyderco Sharpmaker. Using these diamond rods, I was able to quickly reprofile my dull blades and hone them to a razor edge using my Sharpmaker.

I would have given this product 5 stars, but the base of the rods is slightly larger than the standard rods (i.e., those that come with the Sharpmaker system) which stretches out the holes in the plastic base and introduces excessive play when using the standard rods. This has made it more difficult for me to sharpen but I'm figuring out how to hold the knives during sharpening to compensate for the slightly changed angle.

Overall a great product for using the Sharpmaker with less-than-perfect knives.

UPDATE:
Putting a drop of dish soap on the base of the rods allows them to be inserted into the Sharpmaker without damaging it. Wish I had known this prior to initial installation...

I bought these rods as an addition to the Spyderco Sharpmaker to help me remove chips from my knives. The rods themselves work faster in shaping the edge but you still need patience and focus, as with all of the Spyderco stones. Patience and focus will get your rewarded in a sharp hair popping edge.

There is another reason though why I don't like this pair of rods. I was rather miffed after I bought the pair because they don't fit exactly right in the slot of the Sharpmaker. I have read in the past people complaining about Spyderco Sharpmaker QC about the sizing of the rods but have never been bitten by it until now. I also bought a pair of Spyderco Diamond Triangle Pair without issues.

One rod fit fine in both the 30 and 40 angle holes but then the other is a very very tight fit not even able to go all the way and after using it I had to use all of my arm strength to pull it out. Considering that these are just a simple pair of steel rods without even moving parts to them, so the blame cannot go to anything but poor Quality Control on the part of Spyderco. Plus my Sharpmaker is a newer model, bought this year so there should not be an issue of trying to fit a newer model rod to an old Sharpmaker.

These rods will help you reshape your edge with patience and focus, but the fit might be an issue.

2 out of 5.
