The DMT Difference
Diamond Uniformity, Coverage, Surface Flatness
DMT uses micronized monocrystalline diamonds, precisely sized for a more uniform diamond surface. No other diamond sharpeners offers micronized monocrystalline diamond and most offer the lesser grade poly-crystalline diamond. Mono-crystalline is like an ice cube made up of one particle holding its form while poly-crystalline is like a snow-cone made up of many small particles that get sheared off during use.
Coverage: DMT’s process assures the most diamonds per square inch in the industry providing a more durable sharpening surface.
Surface Flatness: DMT bench stones are engineered flat, assuring even contact with the knife or tool.
Choice of Diamond Surfaces
Interrupted or polka dot surface for which DMT is famous has slightly recessed holes that will collect metal fines (swarf) removed during sharpening to prevent loading. Fast sharpening action; not recommended for pointed or very small tools.
Continuous surface presents a more conventional looking sharpening surface. Fast sharpening action; able to use on small surface edges.
HardCoat, DMT’s newest proprietary surface, is able to withstand the rigors of ceramic sharpening, providing an even longer service life to the sharpener.
DMT is committed to providing the best diamond sharpeners in the marketplace. If the sharpener is found to be defective, we will replace it.
Benefits of The DMT Difference
- Precise Diamond Sizing for Consistent Sharpening and Longer Life
- Best Diamond Coverage for Longer-Lasting Service
- Flat Surface for Even Sharpening
- Choice In Diamond Surfaces
- DMT Commitment- Replacement If Found To Be Defective

DMT offers an assortment of very portable, hand-held sharpeners that provide easy storage in home, shop, truck, back-pack or RV. Made to sharpen an array of knives and tools while portable enough for on-the-go sharpening. Interrupted surface models include Diafold, Mini-Sharp, 4-inch Diamond Whetstone; continuous diamond surface stones include 3-inch Credit Card Style, 4-inch stones and Mini-Hone sharpeners; one Double Sided Diafold is available in the HardCoat diamond surface, designed to withstand the rigors of ceramic knife sharpening.
Most steels are designed to align a knife’s blade, but DMT diamond sharpening steels in 10-, 12- and 14-inch models will both align and hone the blade. All are continuous diamond surface but one 12-inch model is offered in DMT’s HardCoat diamond surface, specifically designed to withstand the rigors of ceramic knife sharpening. For those who wish to sharpen with ceramic, DMT offers a 12-inch ceramic steel sharpener.
Bench / Counter Stones
DMT offers a nice selection of diamond bench stones from 6- to 12-inch lengths of varying widths to accommodate home, sport and tactical knives along with a mixture of DIY and woodworking tools. Models include interrupted, continuous and one DuoSharp model in HardCoat diamond. Models include Diamond Whetstone, DuoSharp and Dia-Sharp bench stones.
If you are unsure about sharpening, try one of DMT’s sharpening systems to assist with proper sharpening angles. All systems revolve around the 7-angle adjustable blade guide utilizing either 4-inch diamond whetstones in the Aligner models or Double Sided Diafold Sharpeners in the MagnaGuide line. The blade guide can also be used with DMT’s bench stones.
For best sharpening results keep diamond stone clean
Care and Use of DMT Diamond Sharpeners
All models are designed to be used dry or with water so there are no messy oils and extensive clean up to worry about. Always clean the DMT sharpening surface after sharpening. Rinse surface with water and wipe dry. After several sharpenings, clean more thoroughly with a mild abrasive and brush; rinse surface with water and wipe dry.
Always put away dry and store in a dry environment. Use leafing (paper towels, cloth, plastic storage bag) in between your bench stones to prevent abrasive sides from rubbing.

About Sharpening with DMT
Get the Most out of your DMT Sharpener
There is a ‘break-in’ period for your diamond stone. Initially, it will feel especially rough but will smooth over time without impacting performance. Let the diamonds do the work; just light strokes with the edge to sharpen, same number of strokes each side. Approximately 5 or 6 strokes per side (depending upon condition of edge) compared to 30 strokes per side on a conventional stone, saving time and extending the life of the knife or tool. Start with a coarser grit for damaged or dull edges and work to finer grits. The work the edge is to do will help you determine the grit needed: Rough work, end with coarse grit (cutting cardboard); finer work, work through finer grits (food preparation).

But the diamond covering does not extend all the way to the edge of the stone, at least not on all sides. I contacted DMT, asking whether this was considered a defect, which they would replace from the factory, or whether I should return for a refund.
DMT never wrote back. So I returned it to Amazon for a replacement.
The replacement, too, had a diamond coating that only reached one side of the stone (as if the stones were slightly misaligned in whatever machine applies the coating).
For chisel/plane blades, it's not a big deal that the diamonds don't go all the way across. For a knife with a bolster, however, this creates a spot right near the bolster that won't get abraded. That's not a good thing.
Still, DMT's diamond surface -- on the parts of the stone where it exists -- is still great, once the stone's been used a few times. This particular grit is a finishing grit for most house knives (you want a little tooth left on there), and the grit for bevel formation on shop tools. It cuts fast and evenly.
If I hadn't bought two of these, each with the same problem, my view that DMT was the bee's knees would still be in effect. DMT's complete failure to respond to my first inquiry, and the flawed replacement stone, have left me unhappy. Fortunately for DMT, there doesn't seem to be anybody else out there making really high-quality diamond bench stones (at least in these finer grits), or I would be voting with my wallet.
The kit I bought consisted of four 8" stones, extra course (220 mesh), course (325 mesh), fine (600 mesh) and extra fine (1200 mesh). From what I have found, mesh and grit numbers are basically equivalent. They are all high quality stones and very flat. The issue I have is their designations are deceiving in that the course stones aren't as course as sandpaper counterparts or other stones, while the fine stones are courser than sandpapers or other stones.
I sharpened a chisel using the dmt stones and after the 1200, I didn't feel like I was getting a very fine finish. I sharpened another chisel with wet/dry sandpaper on glass finishing with 400 grit. If you can't tell, the narrow chisel was done with sandpaper. The 400 grit produced a much better finish with about twice as many score lines than the diamond stone. (BTW, I use a Veritas sharpening guide.)
Your experience may differ, but mine wasn't good. Fortunately the company I bought the kit from will accept the return and refund my money.
DMT has a quality control problem. If you get a good one they are good. I suggest if you want one, you get in a car and drive to a retailer that lets you look at them before purchase or be ready to take your chances on the return lottery.
