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

These were the trick to making my Spyderco Sharpmaker truly versatile. I had spent up to 25 minutes re-profiling blades with the medium grit sticks that came with it. Read morePublished 1 month ago by OrloBro

These will remove some metal, so take it easy. Apply only light (almost no) pressure and evaluate after just a few strokes per side. Read morePublished 4 months ago by BCSAlaska
